History:

Rendu Apartments became part of Depaul’s services in 2009, originally part of the Vincentian Housing Partnership and founded by The Daughters of Charity, the Vincentian Fathers and the Society of Saint Vincent de Paul.

What we do:

Rendu Apartments provides 19 self-contained apartments for women and women with children who are experiencing homelessness. Our family service works to help families with complex needs who need some help for a short period of time to learn and develop the skills necessary to move on and live confidently in their own new homes.

Families are encouraged to cook their own meals and manage their own accommodation to develop their independent living skills, seeking help and support in the process from the project staff. The service is staffed 24/7 and there are a number of communal areas where families can socialise together and take part in communal activities.

All families are appointed a personal keyworker and together they develop a needs-based support plan for their stay. This plan covers areas such as parenting, child development, life skills, budgeting, alcohol harm reduction, detox access and physical/mental health support.
