Desert Rose Van
News - Projects
Written by Steve Ujvarosy   

Desert Rose Shelter was created for homeless girls living on the street in the fall of 2007 when Mary Patterson opened the Shelter.  She and her staff have cared for over 30 girls, helping them learn living skills, take classes, provide shelter, food and medical care.  They have partnered with medical staff and the police identification center to provide services at little or no cost. Her dedication to the shelter and homeless children can be seen in the three Mongolian children she has adopted. The shelter is funded by donations.

The problem was that they had no van to pick up the homeless girls or to take them to classes, medical appointments, give food parcels, or do home visits. This project provided the van plus fuel and insurance for one year at a cost of $19,300.

The project was coordinated by the Ottawa Sunrise Rotary club with the funding raised from 4 clubs and 2 district grants.
