Get Involved

Here's how you can support Cork Simon
Helping to change lives
Sponsor a Room

Helping to save a person from a life of homelessness takes much more than a bed for the night. It takes compassion, commitment and a willingness to be there for them no matter what. Room Sponsorship is a very special way that you can be there for someone like Dan, for as long as it takes.

Will You Help?

We’re facing a crisis in Cork. Last year our Outreach Team met 345 people sleeping rough. It’s appalling that men and women are being forced to sleep rough in this great city of ours. You can help do something about it right now. Will you help someone who’s homeless get off the streets of Cork today?

Leave a Legacy

We would be truly honoured to be part of your Legacy. By leaving a gift in your Will, you can provide enduring support for the cause you believe in and help create a brighter future for the generations that follow you by providing housing, healthcare and support to people who are homeless in Cork.
