This June 21st is Ireland’s Summer Solstice – the longest day of the year.
It’s a day where many of us make the most of the welcome stretch in the evenings. But for someone who is experiencing homelessness, every day can feel like the Longest Day. When you have nowhere to call home and no community to call on, you feel vulnerable and isolated. The longer the day, the longer the challenge of homelessness can be.
At Dublin Simon Community, our frontline workers are safeguarding our clients through these especially long days. By providing supported accommodation, healthy food, key-working, counselling, medical treatment and physically distant social activities, they are making sure no one feels they are facing these already challenging times on their own.
This year, in partnership with iconic Dublin printmakers JANDO, we are calling on our community of supporters to raise vital funds for those going through their longest, hardest days.
