In Memory

Focus Ireland works with people who are homeless or at risk of losing their homes across Ireland. We are of the belief that homelessness is wrong. Focus Ireland was founded by Sr. Stanislaus Kennedy in 1985.

Prevention and Sustained Exits

Focus Ireland has two main goals, the first is to prevent homelessness and the second is to provide sustainable exits out of homelessness. Some of the work our services provide include:

  • Youth housing
  • Aftercare support
  • Advice and Information
  • Family Mediation
  • PETE (Preparation for Education, Training and Employment)
  • Temporary accommodation
  • Focus Housing Ltd.

Last year, we worked with 14,537 new customers across Ireland and supported over 4,300 children at risk of homelessness.

How to make an In Memory Donation in honour of your loved one:

Making an In Memory donation is a meaningful way to pay tribute to a family member, friend or loved one while giving the greatest gift to those at risk of homelessness – the gift of hope.

As well as sending you a letter of thanks, we can send an In Memory card on your behalf to the family or a nominated recipient.

If you would like to make an In Memory donation and send a card, please call us 01 881 5930 and ask for our Community Team or email us on events@focusireland.ie.

DONATE

Losing a loved one is one of the most difficult life events. By making a gift in their name you are honouring their life, and making a difference to those who are experiencing hardship due to homelessness. Thank you for considering Focus Ireland.

Donations in lieu of flowers or hold a collection

You can make a request that in lieu of flowers at the funeral or memorial service, contributions be made to Focus Ireland. You can let your friends and family know your wishes by including it in any funeral announcements.

An example of this would be:

“We kindly request donations in lieu of flowers to be sent to Focus Ireland, you can donate online here https://www.focusireland.ie/donate/from/ripie/ or by phoning 01 881 5930″. Alternatively you could set up a fundraising page HERE and start an in memory fundraiser in honour of a loved one.
