Peter McVerry Trust currently provides residential homeless accommodation to individuals, couples and families in Dublin, Kildare, Louth, Meath and Galway.
Peter McVerry Trust works in partnership with local authorities, the Dublin Region Homeless Executive and the Department of Housing, Planning and Local Government to deliver our homeless services. We also rely on funding from our donors to respond quickly and effectively to the needs of those in homelessness.
Our service is modelled on a six-month placement where places are prioritised for:
- Persons over 18 years of age and are homeless
- Persons who have complex low-threshold needs
Unfortunately, due to the acute housing crisis and the lack of housing for single people, it is likely that a person experiencing homelessness will spend longer than six months in emergency accommodation. For that reason, we often have to extend people’s stay beyond six months to ensure they continue to have access to shelter and supports.
