Support Us In Our Mission

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.
Established in 1818, Mendicity is the oldest working charity in Dublin. For over 200 years, we have been 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.
