Welcome to Sophia Nurturing Centres
Our Nurturing Centres are welcoming new children to their services in Cork St and Donabate. An Early Childhood Education student from DCU made this video during their digital placement during COVID restrictions to make that first day away from home easier on children and families!
Sophia and Collaborative Partner Midlands Simon Community begin New Service In Moate Co Westmeath
Sophia in collaboration with Midlands Simon Community and with the support of Westmeath Local Authority and the Department of Housing, Local Government and Heritage, welcomed families to their new homes in Moate, Co. Westmeath just in time for Christmas 2021.
This project is another example of the benefits of working collaboratively to help support more families, couples and individuals to move out of homelessness and into supported homes of their own.
The 12 x two bedroom homes will have on site visiting supports provided by Midlands Simon Community’s support team, with Sophia providing housing and maintenance support.
25 Years of Sophia's Partnership with Congregations Marked at Event
Sophia began marking its 25 years of responding to homelessness in Ireland by paying tribute to the major role Religious Congregations have played in responding to homelessness.
Since its foundation in 1997, Sophia has acted as a conduit for Religious Congregations to contribute to addressing homelessness by making lands and property available to be converted into much needed homes.
New Homes for Families
to Open in Tallaght
Sophia is getting ready to open the doors of new homes for families in Tallaght. These new homes are being provided as a result of a donation of land and buildings by the Daughters of Charity to Sophia and support from Clann Credo.
The Daughters of Charity spent 30 years living and working in Kilinarden having been at the center of community development since the eighties. When the Sisters left they wanted to continue their legacy of supporting residents and saw in Sophia a partner who could provide homes with supports to those who needed it
South Dublin County Council have been working with Sophia to provide homes across the county, with new homes opened last year in Clondalkin. The latest homes to be opened in Tallaght mark a continuation of a partnership that has been successfully housing people since 2006
