Rosies National Newsletter Spring 2016

Did you know children are one of the largest groups in Queensland experiencing homelessness? Over 40% of those experiencing homelessness are aged 25 or younger. Teenagers aged 12-18 represent 10%, and children under 12 make up 17%.

We also cover some inspiring stories from young people. From Ben who obtained a grant to support Rosies and our many friends on the street, to Lenesha who shared with us about her experience at our drop in centre on the Gold Coast.

As usual we travel across the state to bring you the latest news in each of our now eleven branches. Nicky Team Leader in Brisbane tells us about her Rosies Story and Cahala, one of our friends from Toowoomba, shared with us his struggles, strengths, and inspiration .

Don’t forget to read about our volunteer and friend’s stories. While you’re at it, why not print out a copy to leave in the lunch room?
