SOPHIA - OUR MISSION

Sophia - Our Mission

Sophia is a weaving of holistic support to enable people who are homeless to make positive differences in their lives by becoming more aware of their own strengths and potential.
As well as providing accommodation, Sophia will also offer a safe place where one can seek wisdom of mind, heart, soul and spirit. Sophia is an environment that welcomes people who want to step back from the many pressures of their daily lives and environments.

What We Offer

Sophia’s Holistic Model of Care

In all our services we strive to offer a holistic, person centred model of care. This involved working with people at their own pace, using key working and care planning to support them in their journey from homelessness towards greater independence for themselves.

The Wisdom Centre

The Wisdom Centre in our Cork Street project is a beautiful architectural designed, bright and tranquil space surrounded by gardens and water, the Wisdom Centre offers an oasis of calmness amongst the bustle of the city. The Centre offers a safe place where one can seek wisdom of mind, heart and spirit. It is a space which welcomes people who want to step back from the many pressures of their daily lives and environment.

TRAINING AND EDUCATION

We support people to pursue educational, professional goals that can lead to self-development, employment and economic independence. Using the care plan framework, support is provided to help people reach their goals regarding training and employment. We have had residents who have completes a Masters, completed Fetac Levels, completed their Junior or Leaving Certificate and attended other training facilities such as the National Learning Network. Residents are also supported to pursue employment opportunities.
