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 nearly 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 and deprivation. We are inclusive, we are innovative and we provide quality service to all people who come to us.
In 2016, we served over 20,000 meals and offered assistance to more than 200 homeless service users. More than a quarter of the service users have secured employment.
You can support us by sharing your time, skills and knowledge when participating in our projects and events or by contributing your means and assets to facilitate our work.
