Depaul believes homelessness has no place.
We exist to serve homeless individuals and families, caught in the spiral of homelessness, deprived of all control of their lives, when every door is closed to them. Depaul is there because they deserve support to rebuild their lives and progress to a positive future.
We approach this:
With compassion and a willingness to do whatever it takes, no matter what.
With expertise and professionalism so the most excluded get the help they deserve and are not overlooked or ignored.
And we don’t stop there – we innovate when services are needed.
We advocate for hard-to-reach groups and are willing to take risks to make sure the services exist for those experiencing homelessness.
Founded by the Society of St. Vincent de Paul in the Republic of Ireland in 2002 and in Northern Ireland in 2005, Depaul is a separate charity helping people most in need.
