Depaul’s Migrant Homeless Action Team was established in May 2012  by Dublin City Council to provide case management, in-reach support to single migrant men residing in a migrant hostel in Dublin’s City Centre. The remit of the service has subsequently expanded to include homeless migrant families and individuals residing in Private Emergency Accommodation. 

What we do:

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 and community engagement and integration. We act as a referral agent 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.

Where we operate:

Depaul’s MHAT operates in Dublin.


The service is run in conjunction with Dublin Region Homeless Executive.


Referrals are accepted through the Dublin Region Homeless Executive.
