“I was living from day to day not knowing what to do and they helped me to find a better place to live. I was worried about my children and the impact homelessness would have on them in later life”
Depaul’s Migrant Homeless Action Team (MHAT) supports people who are homeless or at risk of homelessness and are not from Ireland so therefore have limited entitlements to support. The team help single men, women and families who are homeless in Dublin.
The MHAT team provides case management support focusing on resettlement, community engagement and integration. Acting as a referral agent and an interpreting service for people to access specialised support relating to housing, health, addiction, training and employment.
Support is tailored to individual needs, which means the duration of time we offer support can be flexible. As an example, we may work with a family for a month, a year, or longer; similarly we may work with an individual for a week, for 3 months, or for half a year.
All referrals to our MHAT service are carried out directly through the Dublin Region Homeless Executive (DRHE).
