Thanks to Key Circle members Focus Ireland can plan and implement long term solutions that deliver lasting societal impacts.
We are facing a crisis in family homelessness in Ireland.
Every single day 2 to 3 families are becoming homeless.
In just the first 4 months of 2016, 366 families and 731 children became homeless in Dublin alone. Many of these families have never experienced homelessness before.
The reasons why families can be drawn into homelessness are complex and interlinked. Six years of recession has seen the income of many families fall sharply due to job losses, pay cuts and/or reduced working hours. The cost of living has shot up and there are more additional taxes to pay such as property tax, USC and pending water charges.
At Focus Ireland our mission is to end homelessness and the support of Key Circle members allows us to plan and implement long term solutions that deliver lasting societal impacts. Our aim is to raise €100,000 from the Key Circle membership each year to fund vital areas of our work with families.
Key Circle is a community of funders who each invest a minimum of €1,000 per year in Focus Ireland’s evidence based and innovative solutions to homelessness. As a Key Circle member you will gain a unique insight into the work we do and a deeper understanding of the challenges we face.
