RufUS began in the early 2000s with a small group of volunteers providing food and clothing to some of Adelaide’s homeless.
In 2010, the RufUS Charitable Trust was established and its volunteers began fitting out newly found housing accommodation for those in need with essential household furniture and items for day to day living.
Over time, this service grew to the extent that RufUS is now the number one provider to government and non-government agencies for the essential household items required by their homeless/ DV clients.
In 2018, Rufus became a public company – RufUS S.A Limited. Its warehouse is located at Wingfield SA from where we deliver our services to the greater metropolitan area of Adelaide.
RufUS is registered with the Australian Charities and Not-for-Profit Commission (ACNC) and is a Deductible Gift Recipient (i.e all donations over $2 are tax-deductible)
To give the homeless a new start to life with
— hope and dignity —
