Homelessness has been affecting more people each year in Ireland. In January 2020 over 10,000 people were in emergency or temporary supported accommodation of which 3,574 were children. (It’d be lovely to have some graphs from Focus Ireland on this).
Since the Covid-19 outbreak, Focus Ireland has seen a 40% increase in the demand for its services, which is likely to increase further as the economic impact of the virus is felt by society. With possible restrictions on shaking charity buckets this Christmas, Focus Ireland appreciate your support now more than ever. Every donation makes a difference
€250 could help Focus Ireland to provide specialised support to children traumatised by their experience of homelessness
€100 will help Focus Ireland provide practical short-term supplies for a family experiencing homelessness.
€50 can help Focus Ireland provide school supplies, books, and uniforms.
€25 could help Focus Ireland provide warm, nutritious meals for families living in emergency accommodation.
