About Mendicity Institution

About Mendicity Institution


It is our mission to disrupt and prevent the cycle of homelessness by enabling and empowering individuals to become self-sufficient members of their communities.

The Mendicity Institution is the oldest working charity in Dublin. Established in 1818, it has been in operation for over 200 years creating opportunities for people experiencing homelessness, isolation and marginalization to live better lives.

We help people empower themselves so they can work their way out of homelessness. We are inclusive, we are innovative and we provide quality service to all who come to us.

In 2019, we served over 40,000 meals and offered assistance to more than 1200 people through Employment & Integration. Our day service is provided without any statutory funding.

You can support us by donating here or volunteering to help with our Weekend and Evening Service. For more information click here
