The Simon Community
They have been working since to alleviate the isolation of people sleeping rough, provide a place where they can gain a sense of belonging and foster the skills they need to move towards independent living. They are a community of homeless people and volunteers living and working together in a spirit of love, acceptance, tolerance and understanding.They aim to reach out to support and campaign for people who are experiencing homelessness, and particularly those for whom no other provision exists.
Focus Ireland helps prevent families, young people and individuals from having to first experience homelessness if possible. For those currently experiencing homelessness, they identify the best available supports and options to aid them on their journey out of homelessness. Another key aspect of our work is supporting those at risk of homelessness again in the future, to minimise the risk, by providing excellent tenancy supports.
Trócaire supports individuals and communities in over 20 developing countries to live with independence and dignity. In Ireland, the charity raises awareness about the root causes of poverty and inequality. Trócaire works in over 20 countries throughout Africa, Asia, Latin America and the Middle East. We work in partnership with local and church organisations to deliver humanitarian assistance and long-term support to communities.
