How RufUs Helps the Homeless

Homelessness can & does happen to anyone

Anyone can fall victim to homelessness. For example, victims of domestic violence, the unemployed, mental disability as well as other reasons too numerous to mention.

RufUs works closely with many other charities/organizations that find housing accommodation for their clients. RufUs fits out the dwelling with essential furniture and items needed by their clients as they begin their new start to life.

Where has the year gone? It's almost the end of September.
We have been doing a steady run of deliveries and now our warehouse is ready for a top-up.
We are especially low on beds and mattresses of all sizes, fridges and washing machines but are happy to accept most furniture and household items.
Recently we have supported a number of families as well several homeless people who have transitioned into housing. Here are some pics of what we've been doing lately.

They offered us tables and chairs, coffee tables, entertainment units, bedside tables, bedside lamps and free-standing lamps plus other items. It's the single largest haul of furniture that we have had donated to Rufus. We are most appreciative and very grateful. Thank you to the Quest staff for their helpfulness and friendliness which made getting the job done easy and smooth. It took 2 days of loading and unloading at both the Quest site as well as the warehouse. The Rufus team worked really well together to make this happen. In between loads, we were also able to
