12 Louth homeless people rehomed
Louth County Council have an active Pathway out of Homelessness Plan in place which has helped 12 people moved into transitional accommodation over the past month, it has been claimed. Speaking at the October meeting of Drogheda Municipal District, Senior Executive Engineer Martina Sheeran said the council regularly hold homeless clinics in the county with all the relevant agencies including Drogheda Homeless Aid, Mental Health Services and the Women’s Shelter coming together to provide all the help they can to those who are genuinely homeless. ‘Once they are in the system they will get this support,’ she said. ‘When we have established that they are genuinely homeless we will offer shelter in a hostel or a B&B or a hotel.
‘In the last month alone 12 people have moved out after spending six months in a hostel and have moved into transitional accommodation so there is an awful lot of good work being done in Louth,’ said Ms Sheeran. The growning problem of homeless in Louth was debated at the meeting.
