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

Homeless watch

517 men and women were depending on emergency accommodation in Cork in March 2023 - one of the highest on record.

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.

50 Years in the making, decades in the refining. 50 Faces reflecting the thousands of men and women who make us what we are: people believing in people. These are their words, their stories, our experience.
