Drogheda Homeless Aid

About Drogheda Homeless Aid

Drogheda Homeless Aid was set up in 1982 by Sr. Cait Fitzgerald to cater for the growing number of homeless people in our community, and since then has provided accommodation, care and support for over 4,000 homeless people, many of whom have resettled into our community and are living independent fulfilled lives.

What's Involved

Drogheda Homeless Aid's Annual sleep out will take place on 8th December 2018. The annual Sleep Out is one of the biggest fundraisers of the year for Drogheda Homeless Aid. Volunteers are required to help out with this fundraising throughout the day and night
