How to have a #cuppa4rosies

homelessness_in_Queensland

Tonight, 20,000 Queenslanders are homeless. Nearly half are women. Over 40% are aged 25 or under, more than 3,500 of those are kids 12 and under. The face of homelessness and loneliness is changing. At least 1 in 10 of us will sleep rough in out lifetime. It could be you, it could me, it could be someone you know. 

Imagine sleeping rough without any protection from the elements. At least one in ten of us will sleep rough in their lifetime. It could be you, it could be me, or it could be someone you know. And it’s cold outside. As John, one of our many friends’ story highlights, being homeless often leads to feeling of fear, anxiety, and social withdrawal. The sense of isolation that comes from not feeling part of the community can cause us to withdraw even further from activities critical to our wellbeing.
