The YMCA is in partnership with Depaul Ireland, a supported housing project for young homeless people aged 18-30yrs.
We have 35 single occupancy, ensuite bedsits. Residents will be assigned a qualified keyworker who will work actively with them on care plans to get ready for independent living. This is a high-quality, client-centred service.
The service is a short term project for a six month basis, for single young men and women experiencing homelessness.
Each en-suite room also provides residents with a small kitchenette. The service has access to a variety of communal areas and laundry facilities.
During their stay, all residents are appointed a keyworker to ensure they can access all the services they require and receive the appropriate support to move on and out of homelessness
Together the young person and their keyworker develop an individualised support that often covers areas such as life skills, budgeting, welfare entitlements, relationship work, education, employment and health support. Taking the time to learn to manage their own day-to-day independent living within the service is so important in equipping each young person with the skills needed for a positive move on.
If you are experiencing Homelessness then you need to call the Central Placement Service (CPS) on FREEPHONE 1800 707 707. The CPS is open on a 24/7 basis and will assess the presenting need and place in an appropriate service.
