Sharing friendship since 1987

Welcome to Rosies

Can you imagine what it would be like if no one had said your name or looked you in the eye in the last three months?

Unfortunately this is something that many people who are homeless, at risk of homelessness, or socially isolated experience.

It is our mission to ensure that no Queenslander feels left out or disconnected from their community. Rosies aims to provide friendship and unconditional acceptance to those doing it tough with a warm smile and a hot drink.

Some of our patrons even equate connection and conversation to be as important as safe accommodation and food1.

The stress that comes with homelessness or being at risk of homelessness also increases the risk of mental illness.You’d be surprised what a difference a simple chat and basic hospitality can do to impact an individual’s mental health and physical wellbeing.

Rosies reaches out to those most in need, people who are homeless or at risk, lonely, and socially isolated within our communities.”
