Volunteer BBQs continue at Tierney House
Since 2006 volunteers have undertaken BBQs at Gorman House three times a week, to provide camaraderie and support to the residents. With Gorman House’s temporary closure during its refurbishment and transition to a medical detoxification unit, BBQs during this period have moved to Tierney House.
Tierney House is part of St Vincent’s Homeless Health Service and is a 12 bedded residential unit assisting the inner city homeless population to access health care. Tierney House provides a safe and stable environment whereby residents can access assessment, treatment and support from St Vincent’s Hospital and local health and support services.
Gorman House is expected to re-open by the end of the year where the Order’s BBQs will resume. However following the success and popularity of the BBQs at Tierney House, the NSW Branch is also hoping to continue the service there. The Branch would like to hear from volunteers who would be interested in participating in these BBQs.
