Focus Ireland works with people who are homeless or are at risk of losing their homes across Ireland.
We prevent men, women and children from entering homelessness, and support those already impacted by homelessness to access stable accommodation. The current homeless crisis is the worst in living memory as a record total of 9,846 people are homeless, with 3,826 of these children. In 2017 Focus Ireland helped 109 people in Wexford town and county.
The south east region is Focus Ireland’s second biggest unit of services in Ireland.
Focus Ireland continues to put forward realistic policy solutions to help prevent and end homelessness. We do this work through over 80 frontline services across Ireland. While the crisis is still deepening, the situation would be much worse without the services and housing we provide.
The vast majority of people who are homeless stay in emergency accommodation (Like hostels or hotels) and a small number sleep rough.
Focus Ireland helped over 700 families who were homeless to secure a home last year in partnership with the State. Our services worked to help 14,500 people who were homeless or at risk of losing their homes
