What is Many Rooms?
Many Rooms is about creating safe and friendly places of encounter between those who are doing it tough and ordinary people who want to help. We engage and equip volunteers to help out in practical ways, but also seek to involve all people – including participants – in whatever we do. As we journey together, we also learn from each other.
We began as an initiative of City on a Hill church in 2009, with a small group of people praying and dreaming about how we could be involved in making a difference in Melbourne. Our first room, The Kitchen, is a drop-in centre open every Friday night 6-8pm (CBD) and Saturday 8:45am – 3pm (North Melbourne), offering meals and social activities. An important feature of The Kitchen is that it is open when everyone else is shut. There are very few services available to the homeless community on a weekend, which is why we targeted it with our first room.
Our dream is to open more rooms in the future, each linked in with church community, hence our name Many Rooms. Learn more about us by exploring this website. We’d love to hear from you if you’d like to know more about volunteering or you wish to support us in other ways.
