In 2021, Peter McVerry Trust is progressing housing projects in 28 of the 31 Local Authorities across Ireland and the charity has a pipeline of over 300 units throughout the country.
Three of those projects are our latest Repair and Leasing projects in Athy, which sees three long-term vacant properties brought back into use as high-quality homes for people on the local social housing waiting list.
With the total cost to kit-out each home at circa €10,000 (€30,000 in total), we are asking the people of Kildare for their support to make a house a home for people getting a key to their own door.
At Peter McVerry Trust, it is our belief that people should be given the best start in their new home. That’s why we kit-out all our new homes for people leaving homelessness, right down to the cutlery, cups and kettles, because we want people to be able to concentrate on adapting to their new home and integrating into their communities.
So, whether it’s €5 to contribute to a family’s first food shop, or the cost of kitting out an entire home, your support plays a vital role in creating a comfortable, secure home for a person leaving homelessness.
