Rosies has changed in many ways from our humble beginnings in the seaside town of Rosebud, VIC – no longer do a small group of dedicated individuals give up 12 months of their life to outreach across Queensland. Today we have a team of 1,500 passionate and dedicated volunteers who spend a few hours a month creating meaningful connections and sharing friendship with individuals who are homeless, at risk of homelessness, socially isolated or lonely.
Rosies places our friends, patrons and many volunteers at the top of our organisational structure. Our CEO leads a small team of people behind the scenes who support the amazing work done by our Branch Coordinators, Team Leaders, and Volunteers in service of our many friends. Our board provides governance for the organisation and we are blessed to have Sir Peter Cosgrove and the Honourable Leneen Forde as our Patrons.
Thank you to all our wonderful volunteers, without your tireless effort and commitment to community there would be no Rosies.
