North West Simon’s Response to Homelessness

North West Simon Community aims to prevent and resolve homelessness for any person who seeks our support as speedily and effectively as possible. The strategies and supports necessary to achieve these objectives can be wide and varied, as each person’s experience of homelessness, presents different challenges and requires the types of specialist and targeted responses described here.

In 2018, North West Simon Community supported 142 households to avoid using emergency accommodation across the region and delivered Supported Housing solutions for 33 Households in Donegal and Leitrim.

However, homelessness is not solely an issue related to personal circumstances and North West Simon Community is also active in campaigning for the changes required at State level to end homelessness in Ireland.
