The support Focus Ireland gets from the Business Community is not only central to the delivery of our services; it ensures that we can end homelessness and the inter-generational cycle of homelessness for many families and individuals each year.
By partnering with us, fundraising, volunteering, or by participating in our events, your company can help Focus Ireland raise much needed funds for people who are homeless or at risk of losing their homes.
