What is Crosscare?
Crosscare exists to support people and families when they face difficult challenges in life and when they find it hard to get the help they need. Crosscare focuses on helping people when they need it most or when they can’t find support anywhere else.
Homeless, Housing & Welfare Support
Crosscare supports people who are homeless or struggling to find accommodation and who may have complex needs. We run seven homeless services, to a very high standard, while all the time working to help people move on to a better, more stable life.
We run Youth-led programmes responding to the needs of young people from the age of 10 to 24. Our programmes include:
• Youth Groups
• Outdoor Learning
• Mental Health and Wellbeing
• Drug and Alcohol Awareness
• Education, Training and Employment Supports
• Youth Diversion Projects
• Summer Projects
• Film, Photography & Performing Arts
Migrants, Refugees & Emigrants
Crosscare Information & Advocacy Service works to provide increased stability and quality of life for vulnerable and marginalised people, including those who are homeless or at risk of homelessness. We work to support people with low or no income, Irish emigrants and migrants, refugees and asylum seekers living in Ireland.
Community Cafés and Food
Food Poverty Support
We are dedicated to creating long term, sustainable outcomes for those experiencing food poverty.
We support people and families with emergency food provision and give them assistance in addressing the underlying causes of food poverty.
We have two community cafés in Portland Row and Dun Laoghaire. Our cafés are open to the public for breakfast and lunch. We serve affordable, healthy meals in a friendly community setting.
