I'm fundraising for...
On Friday 14th of October, Rosie & Jim and their Team members will be sleeping out for one night to shine a light on homelessness in Ireland and raise vital funds for Focus Ireland.
In May, homelessness figures surpassed 10,000, the highest figure recorded since before the pandemic due to a lack of affordable, secure housing in Ireland. Right now, there are 1,366 families, including 3,028 children without a home. These families can spend up to two years in a one-bedroom room in an emergency accommodation situation, which has a significant impact on mental health, self-esteem, and child development.
However, homelessness would be much worse without the work of Focus Ireland. Focus Ireland is ending homelessness every day for families and individuals and our services are working hard to protect people who are currently homeless – especially children from the trauma caused by homelessness.
Please donate to my Shine A Light Night to help Focus Ireland support the thousands of families and children without a home in Ireland right now.
