Welcome to Dundalk Simon Community
Closing Doors on Homelessness
PATHWAY OUT OF HOMELESSNESS
Since 1973, Dundalk Simon Community has offered opportunity and hope to local people.
As the largest organisation serving those at-risk and homeless in the north-east of Ireland, Dundalk Simon Community changes lives by providing a wide range of services and support to as many as 100 individuals a day.
To do all this, we rely on donations for more than one-quarter of our €1 million annual operating budget.
Our doors are open to adults over 18 years of age regardless of gender, civil status, family status, age, race, religion, disability, sexual orientation, membership of the Traveller community, or the circumstances that have brought them to our doors.
Who We Help
Dundalk Simon provides a diverse range of services to adults who are homeless or at risk of homelessness in the north-east, the majority of whom are dealing with alcohol/drug addiction. This includes people who perceive themselves to be at risk of homelessness, people facing social isolation, and ex-service users –
The majority of people who use our services are single women and men (both single addiction and dual diagnosis), elderly men and women previously homeless with chronic physical and mental health issues, young people aged 18-23yrs, and individuals with a disability.
Become A Volunteer
We need your help and there is no shortage of ways in which you can help. You can share your talents, skill and expertise as a volunteer; you can fundraise in your own community. You can run, walk, sing, or Stock the Shop for Simon. You can make direct financial contribution, if you’re able – for we are struggling to make ends meet and a donation, no matter how small, will be expended wisely.
It is also important to learn about homelessness so that you can be part of the solution to end homelessness and fight the stigma experienced by people who are vulnerable.
