About

Since 1981, the West Roxbury Friends of Rosie’s Place (WRFORP) have prepared and served meals and supported the food pantry at Rosie’s Place, a sanctuary for poor and homeless women in Boston’s South End. Rosie’s Place does not accept government funding. It depends on the kindness of people like you.

WRFORP also serves Boston families in need through its support of the Roslindale Food Pantry, and by making it possible for homeless and economically disadvantaged children to attend summer camp.

Your generous donations and participation in our annual events are critical to this mission. WRFORP is an all-volunteer organization. Nearly 100% of your donations go directly to support women and families in need.

West Roxbury Friends of Rosie’s Place is a 501(c)3 Tax Exempt Organization.



West Roxbury Friend’s of Rosie’s Place is starting 2022 ignited by our loyal supporters! 

We are taking aim at food insecurity. Roslindale Food Pantry continues to report increases in the number of people they serve, and the food pantry at Rosie’s Place is serving triple their pre-pandemic numbers.

Children also need our help. We are committed to sponsoring children’s participation in activities in the Boston area that support their mental health. 

We hope you’ll join us on this worthwhile ride. COVID has interrupted our lives, but it has not interrupted our ability to help our neighbors in need. This year, we are shooting for the moon and aiming to raise at least another $40,000.  Let’s make helping others a BLAST!
