We also have a five long-term houses social houses in which we house families from the Local Authority housing waiting lists. 

History

Drogheda Homeless Aid was set up in 1982 by Sr. Cait Fitzgerald to cater for the growing number of homeless people in our 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. In 1999, the old cottage from which Drogheda Homeless Aid operated in 35 North Strand was demolished, and the construction of our new 22-unit purpose built hostel commenced. The new hostel was officially opened in September 2000 by Minister Dermot Ahern, and was funded by the Department of the Environment and Local Government under the Capital Assistance Scheme.  St. Joseph's Hostel now caters for 25 residents at any one time. On average, 130 residents  stay in the hostel each year
