‘Sa Bhaile’ project helps home­less peo­ple re­turn to in­de­pen­dent liv­ing

Bray People - - NEWS -

A NEW PROJECT aimed at as­sist­ing home­less peo­ple in the Bray area to find suit­able ac­com­mo­da­tion and re­turn to in­de­pen­dent liv­ing was launched this week.

‘ Sa Bhaile’ is a joint project of Queen of Peace Parish, St. Vin­cent de Paul and the Or­der of the Knights of St. Colum­banus.

The project will as­sist home­less peo­ple in the Bray area to se­cure ac­com­mo­da­tion and will then pro­vide its clients with a pro­gramme which will help them re­turn to in­de­pen­dent liv­ing.

‘We are aware of the prob­lem of home­less­ness in Bray and we plan to make a con­tri­bu­tion to­wards al­levi- at­ing the sit­u­a­tion by as­sist­ing a num­ber of home­less peo­ple to se­cure ac­com­mo­da­tion,’ said Sa Bhaile chair­man Fr. Larry White PP.

‘ It is also very im­por­tant that home­less peo­ple who se­cure ac­com­mo­da­tion are given the sup­ports that they need to­wards a re­turn to in­de­pen­dent liv­ing and we plan to pro­vide such sup­ports over an ex­tended pe­riod.’

Sa Bhaile is cur­rently re­cruit­ing a Project Co­or­di­na­tor who will man­age the project and it is hoped that the first clients will be placed in suit­able ac­com­mo­da­tion over the com­ing months.
