Rosie’s Place truly sees all poor and homeless women as part of our community, whether they visit us regularly or never set foot in our building.
Our Friendly Visitor program connects volunteers with poor and isolated women at home or in long-term care facilities. Friendships form, bringing a measure of comfort and enjoyment to both our guests and our volunteers. To have someone to talk with and to share experiences with is a welcome relief for women who may have no other visitors. Last year, volunteers offered companionship, conversation and support to 19 women.
