‘’’I know they might be able to fix homelessness. But I’ll never be able to forget it’’  

Those are words shared by Nicola, a young mother who has been homeless for the last year and a half.

Help protect families this Easter

Nicola and her 3-year-old son Liam are living in one of the Focus Ireland supported housing units.

‘’We don’t have a permanent home yet, and I don’t know how long it will take before we do. But thanks to you, Focus Ireland are doing everything they can for us and the difference that has made is unbelievable.

Thanks to your kindness we are safe now. But there are so many more families who need your help’’.

Please give what you can.

This is how you can help us protect families this Easter

€40 Could help a new mother like Nicola, with some of the essential supplies for her child.

€75 Could help vulnerable families with immediate one-to-one support and guidance.

€125 Could help a family find safe and secure housing, with the advice and support they need.

Your support is one of the few things that is actively helping families to escape homelessness – every single day.

Please help protect more families at risk, before they become trapped in a never ending spiral of homelessness.

Nicola’s personal story is a perfect example of what is happening right now to hundreds of families all over Ireland. The number of people in homelessness is higher now than it has ever been before. There are over 11,700 people living in emergency accommodation, with many more uncounted who are sleeping on sofas or sharing overcrowded dwellings with family or friends.

Focus Ireland is establishing specialist teams, whose sole focus will be to provide families trapped in homelessness with the immediate practical and emotional support they need to survive. But we can only do that with your help.
