Rosies Youth Mission is an initiative of the Missionary Oblates of Mary Immaculate. We are a not for profit organisation with a volunteer base of over 600 active volunteers across Queensland, who provide unconditional acceptance and friendship to people who are marginalised within our community.
At Rosies we aim to provide friendship and practical support to some of the most abandoned people in our society. We are not primarily trying to feed, clothe and house people (although we sometimes offer these elements); we are trying to build friendships. The basic building blocks of friendship are to spend time with, listen and talk to people. As such at Rosies, the main job of the volunteer is to spend time building relationships with the people that use our service.
Rosies is non-preaching and non-discriminatory.
