Cork Simon Community works in solidarity with men and women experiencing homelessness, offering housing and tailored supports on their journey back to independent living. Cork Simon believes that everyone should have fair access to housing and a basic standard of living.
Cork Simon works to a Housing First philosophy – working to house people as quickly as possible in a place they can afford, opening the door to hope and a much brighter future. It then surrounds each person with the supports they need to remain housed, which helps to restore their confidence and enables people to rebuild their lives at a pace they can manage.
Cork Simon offers outreach support for people sleeping rough, as well as a nightly soup run, a day service that facilitates access to a specialist health team and 24-hour emergency accommodation. A range of specialist housing services, including high-support housing for people with complex needs who cannot live independently, housing first, stabilisation for alcohol and drug users, and addiction treatment and aftercare, among others, aims to end homelessness for people as quickly as possible. Tailored wraparound supports, including an education, training and employment team, aim to provide people with the tools they need to leave homelessness behind for good. Visit website ›
