Since early 2014, we have been growing Rosalie’s Haven. We are all volunteers and operate on donations from the wonderful people who believe in our women. We help women into a more fulfilling life. A life with more choice. A life with longer term joy. Rosalie’s Haven provides practical, emotional, social, career and spiritual support our women need.
All of these areas provide for growth and success:
Support of Immediate needs: Accommodation, food and clothing. These are often the immediate need most women have. We also work with organisations and services to help solve debt.
Support of Emotional and Social needs: We introduce healthy friendships and wholesome connections with community, all in an environment of progress and upwards growth. We have programs on successful relationships, life increase and fruitful growth, all of which work to enable our women to become more confident in themselves.
Support of Career needs: Through our partner organisations we run programs that help women discover the range of progressive career options. We believe our women can progress into these new careers, opening up possibilities previously only dreamed of by our women.
Rosalie's TestimonyThere were 2 children in our family, my brother Malcolm, he is a year older than myself. Our Mother wasn’t very well and couldn’t look after us. Mother left the family when I was 2 and Malcolm was 3. Family circumstances changed. At the age of 2 my mother said she could no longer cope, took us to our Aunt and Uncle and their family and just left us. Malcolm never saw his mum again and I never saw her again until just before I got married. When I was 4 my Aunt told my father he would need to move on with his family, as my aunt was having another child and needed the room. Abandoned My father said he would take Malcolm but wasn’t interested in me because I was a girl, so my father took Malcolm up to the King Country and I was put into a Children’s Home.

Join our team now! Volunteer!One study found 75% of women involved in the sex industry have attempted suicide. Women involved in the industry often will not seek help because they are suspicious of outsiders and authorities, fear rejection, and fear change. Sex workers often fear admitting they have been harmed. They may have difficulty establishing enough control over their own lives to seek help.
