Cork Foyer provides a unique combination of safe and affordable accomodation, support and training under one roof for 18 young adults aged 18-25, that were homeless or at risk of becoming homeless.  Using a multi-agency approach, the Foyer aims to meet the needs and rights of young adults, whilst offering a dynamic and supportive community where Foyer residents receive information, advice and guidance on:

  • Vocational Training and Education                                                                        
  • Employment
  • Housing                                                                                 
  • Personal Wellbeing
  • Welfare Benefits                                                                             
  • Development of Skills for Independent Living.
