About Inner City Helping Homeless (ICHH)
ICHH currently feed up to 100 rough sleepers in the Dublin area at night. At ICHH we strive to provide Dublin's rough sleepers with a frontline service of hot drinks, food, sleeping bags, clothing advice and support.
Inner City Helping Homeless was formed in November 2013 to combat the ever growing homeless crisis that was clearly evident across the city of Dublin.
Volunteers are required to be part of a team providing outreach services one night out of five from 10.45pm to 1.15am. This involves being part of a team, distributing hot drinks and food to the homeless on the north and south side of city. This task is carried out on foot.
