Episode 105 – Drogheda Homeless Aid

Drogheda Homeless Aid aim to restore dignity and hope by providing care, support and shelter for homeless men, encouraging self-development, independent living and resettlement.

Drogheda Homeless Aid was set up in 1982 by Sr. Cait Fitzgerald to cater for the growing number of homeless people in the community, and since then has provided accommodation, care and support for over 4,000 homeless people, many of whom have resettled into our community and are living independent fulfilled lives.

DHA caters for 25 residents at any one time with 140 men typically staying in the hostel in a typical twelve-month period.

Drogheda Homeless Aid is also a housing association with 5 long term houses and 3 transitional houses. I spoke to Bernard Maguire the chef in the centre and a couple residents, Martin and Pigeon, on the latest PODAROONEY.
