A Message From Director Cathal Morgan

On behalf of the staff of the Dublin Region Homeless Executive, the Statutory Management Group and the Joint Dublin Homeless Consultative Forum, we would like to thank you and acknowledge all the hard work done this year, particularly by frontline staff in the response to homelessness in the Dublin region.  We would encourage you to share our film,  which  includes core contact information for the services that are in place for persons who are rough sleeping and / or homeless. The film also highlights some of the achievements that have been made in 2015, as we progress persons out of homelessness and into their own homes.

 
Merry Christmas to you all and best wishes for 2016.
