Challenge

Simon delivers support and services to over 7,500 individuals and families who experience or are at risk of homelessness across Ireland each year. Local Simon Communities throughout Ireland provide a variety of services including food and emergency accommodation as well as short and long term support for people who are homeless. Our resources are strained as more and more vulnerable people face the prospect of becoming homeless.

Solution

The Simon Communities throughout Ireland will continue to provide meals, emergency accommodation and support to those who are homeless or at risk. In addition Simon will provide specialist health and treatment services, tenancy sustainment and settlement services to support people to move on to independent living.

Long-Term Impact

There are many reasons why a person becomes homeless, and at Simon we deal with them all. The eight local Simon Communities in Ireland continue to provide innovative, high quality services responding effectively and meeting local needs, as we have done for over 40 years. While the economic future remains uncertain, Simon will continue to work with hope and optimism focusing on making a real and lasting difference to the lives of some of the most vulnerable people in our society.
