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 County Council and the Department of Housing, Local Government and Heritage, welcomed families to their new homes in Moate, Co Westmeath just in time for Christmas.
The project is another example of the benefits of working collaboratively to help take more families, couples and individuals 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.
Passing of Landmark UN Resolution on Homelessness
Sr. Jean Quinn D.W (Founder of Sophia) has played a key role in getting a landmark resolution on homelessness adopted by the United Nations General Assembly.
The resolution, the first adopted by the General Assembly on homelessness, urges governments across the globe to address the causes of homelessness and to provide supports that those who have experienced homelessness need.
The resolution calls on Member States to address the structural drivers of homelessness, including inequality, poverty, access to affordable housing, and the high costs of energy and health care. It also calls on the Member States to record not just the number of people who are visibly homeless but also those who are considered the hidden homeless.
