The Way Home, the new strategy to address adult homelessness in Ireland, 2008 to 2013, marks a very important departure in Government policy on homelessness.
It sets out a vision for 5 years, underpinned by a detailed programme of action, with 3 core objectives:
- eliminating long-term occupation of emergency homeless facilities;
- eliminating the need to sleep rough; and
- preventing the occurrence of homelessness as far as possible.

The strategy builds on the strong progress made under the Integrated Homeless Strategy (2000) and Preventative Strategy (2002) and is informed by an Independent Review of the Implementation of Homeless Strategies published in 2006.
