The North West Simon Community, an affiliate of the Simon Communities, has called for more support from local communities as more people are availing of their services.

The North West Simon Community in Donegal provides ‘Supported Housing’ to 42 individuals in Letterkenny, and provides a ‘Tenancy Sustainment Service’ to families and individuals throughout Co. Donegal.

Homelessness has a stigma attached to it and unfortunately, in today’s challenging environment, many individuals and families throughout Ireland are finding themselves in this frightful situation.

North West Simon Community works with people not only to address their immediate crisis but to try and have long term sustainable solutions for the individual and their family such as developing a routine, providing life-skills, accessing training and educational opportunities.

More and more people in the North West are today turning to North West Simon Communityfor help and support. The North West Simon Community prevent 100 people a year throughout the North West from becoming homeless.

They are not in receipt of government funding to sustain their services, therefore, they rely heavily on funding from donations and fundraising.

If you would like to make a difference in your local community, by organising a fundraising event such as, a Coffee Morning, Fundraising Walk or by making a donation, please contact Collette direct on:
