We believe that everyone should have fair access to
safe, secure and affordable housing.


Ann wants to give everyone the home that Cork has given her. 
Please take a moment to hear from Ann why she's leaving a gift in her Will to Cork Simon Community.

Gifts in Wills

If you know Cork, you know that we live in a caring community.

That sense of belonging was here before all of us – and will be here long after us.

If you would like more information about leaving a gift in your Will to Cork Simon, contact Leona on 021 4929 418.

Homeless watch

737 men, women and children were depending on emergency accommodation in Cork and Kerry in May 2024.

Our Emergency Shelter is overflowing. People are staying longer because they have no other options.

Rents in Cork continue to rise while supply remains at an all-time low; Rent Supplement & Housing Assistance Payments fall well-short of current market rents.
