The Blue House, Reuben & Wrecker

“I’ve had him since he was five weeks and he’s turning three this year. I didn’t know what to call him and then I found him chewing up everything so I called him Wrecker. He’s my best friend. He frets when I’m not around and I do too. Wherever I go I’ll take him with me, share my food with him, everything. He’s so placid and good with children.”

This is Reuben and Wrecker. We had the pleasure of meeting Reuben and Wrecker at The Blue House in Parramatta. Reuben was once living rough on the streets along with Wrecker before The Blue House took them in and helped them get back on their feet. Community Medic took occupation of The Blue House and have transformed it into a safe place for homeless rough sleepers to find support. The Blue House is still working to build an official office, but their doors and services remain open nonetheless. It is a 24-hour information and services premises for people who are homeless. The homeless are welcome at any time to shower, wash and dry their clothes, get emergency bedding, accommodation and support in whatever way needed. Blue House even provides computers with internet access. The best part is that they welcome companion animals, meaning that absolutely everyone is welcome. The Blue House is an incredible place that helps rough sleepers transform their lives. The amazing sense of community often means the people who come through Blue House become family. Community Medic is now looking to open more premises around Australia. We encourage you to learn more about this great organisation at http://www.communitymedic.org.au/
