Fifty Years Rebuilding Lives
This year we are marking 50 years since Dublin Simon Community first began. What motivated our first volunteers from Trinity College and UCD to set out on that cold February night onto the streets of Dublin still continues to be the driving energy of our experienced and trained volunteers and staff working across our services today.
It is hard to put into words, but ultimately it is the same compassion that motivates people like you to support our services and help the men, women and families who are facing some of the toughest times of their lives.
“It’s such a change going from a crazy world into the Simon Community where you have a warm bed, you have food and a shower and most importantly you have staff and volunteers around you that actually care.”
“It’s really important to feel part of a community and feel wanted like that because you don’t feel like that when you’re on the streets.”
– Sinead, Simon Client

Q: What are the advantages of a Direct Debit?
A: Setting up a Direct Debit allows Dublin Simon Community to start new projects as well as develop new initiatives to assist people experiencing homelessness.
Not only that, it allows you to make a bigger impact with your donation! By setting up a regular donation you are making sure that we can plan for the future as well as cutting administration costs.
It’s easy to track how much you’ve donated and is totally flexible. By becoming a part of our community you are directly enabling our long-term provision and ultimately helping to get more people out of homelessness.
