Success is hard to measure but examples of good news stories coming out of St Rob are;

Peter contacted St Rob one Friday night in November 2018 after taking Methamphetamine and was suicidal with no place to go.

After talks with St ROB, Peter was picked up that night and taken to one of the St Rob houses.

Peter was 29 years of age and had a previous background in heavy drug use and his life was spiraling out of control.

He also did a lot of things to support his habit. Things that he regrets. Fortunately, he is no longer on that path of destruction.

 

Over the following months and with the daily support of mentors from St Rob, Peter was seeing a path towards a better future, illegal substance abuse was becoming a thing of the past.

Apart from a few small setbacks, Peter has continued with his progress and in 2022 took on the role of House Manager at one of St Rob's properties.

St Rob also purchased a small vehicle in 2022 and Peter became the driver for St Rob by supporting other residents in attending hospital, Dr's and other daily outings.

He was in a very fragile state and stayed with one of St Robs Managers for 8 weeks before he considered himself stable enough to live on his own. He moved into a St Rob house and was supported through his court proceedings Paul concluded his court proceedings and with continued support after about 12 months obtained full time employment.
