Until they can close their own door behind them, the most vulnerable members of our society will always be at their most vulnerable.
For 50 years, the Simon Community have been helping people Close the Door on Homelessness.
To mark this, our #ClosingDoors campaign shares our clients’ experiences of moving on from homelessness, and the safety and security of closing their own front door behind them.
At Simon, we continue to protect those who are at their most vulnerable and help them change the course of their lives. By providing the physical door to a home of their own we are helping people to close the door on the mental strain of homelessness, on fear, insecurity, addiction or ill-health.
In 2018, the Simon Communities ‘closed the door’ for more than 2,400 men, women and children across Ireland, helping them move out of homelessness and into a secure home.
The #ClosingDoors campaign aims to bring the public to the final step of a person’s journey out of homelessness and into their own home. Read more about our clients’ experiences below.
Creative, media and public relations agencies involved in the campaign have donated their services for free.
