Peter McVerry Trust“Peter McVerry Trust is a housing and homeless charity established in 1938 to tackle homelessness, drug misuse and social disadvantage. In 2016, Peter McVerry Trust worked with over 4,500 individuals across our many services including housing, homeless, drugs-treatment, under-18’s and prevention. They currently provide services and support to people experiencing homelessness in Dublin, Kildare and Limerick.

By supporting Peter McVerry Trust church gate collection on Sunday 13th Aug 2017, you will ensure that individuals experiencing homelessness are provided with safe, long-term accommodation and ultimately a key to their own home. People like Barry, who is now in his mid- 30’s. Barry was provided with a home by Peter McVerry Trust just a few weeks ago. It is his first home as an adult and Barry will continue to receive support from our Housing with Supports team to ensure that he can maintain his tenancy. With your support, and that of your parish we can continue to work with people like Barry to ensure that they can exit homelessness and move into a home of their own.”
