When we first opened our doors in 1989 we were operating out of one room in the Franciscan Friary in Merchants Quay as a small team of volunteers.

Fifteen years on, the problems of drug use and homelessness continue to devastate many thousands of people across the country every year; however we are now much better equipped to address these problems. We are able to work with between two and three hundred homeless people and drug users every day. The services we provide for homeless people include meals, primary healthcare, counselling, crisis support, advice and information, settlement services and transitional housing. For drug users we offer needle exchange and health promotion services, structured day programmes, family support services, group and individual counselling, a range of treatment options, two residential drug-free treatment programmes and aftercare services.

Our experience is that where resources have been invested and where services have been established, people's lives have been transformed.
