More Info....

 

Well, I have just been notified that I won the lottery!!!!..... That is, the lottery to enter the Bank of America Chicago Marathon on 13th OCtober 2013! I am running the marathon for a great little charity called the Galway Simon Community who do fantastic work in the local community by providing loads of support to people who have lost heir homes. This is an incredible charity that should serve as a role model for communities all over the world!

I have never run a marathon in my life.... nor a half marathon..... or a 10k...... come to think of it, I haven't run a 5k before either so this should be pretty interesting. I'd imagine there will be blisters involved... lot's of them....

Anyways, I could use all the support and encouragement I can get, so please help cheer me on (ehemm, with your wallets:)) and help me achieve my target of €4000 to help keep someone warm and fed next winter. Your help is really appreciated.

GALWAY SIMON COMMUNITY
Galway Simon Community offer services to those who are homeless or at risk of homelessness.

COMMUNITY OUTREACH
Our main focus is to prevent people from becoming homeless through the work of our Community Outreach Team, which offers practical support, assistance and advice to help people to:
  • Maintain their own home, or 
  • Find a new home when it is no longer possible for them to remain in their own home.
When a client needs extra support to move out of homelessness, we offer them a place in our supported housing services. These include the following services:

RESIDENTIAL HOUSING
When people require support to live independently or have been homeless for a long time, they can move into one of our four shared houses located in Galway City. They are staffed on a 24 hour basis and cater to up to 25 people.

RESETTLEMENT SERVICE
This service actively works with people to move them out of homelessness in a shorter period of time than our residential housing services. It consists of one house located in Galway City that is staffed on a 24 hour basis and caters for up to 10 men.

HOUSING IN THE COMMUNITY 
We also offer shared and individual move on accommodation options for clients who are able to live independently. Staff support is provided to clients based on their individual needs. This service caters for up to 38 people.

RESOURCE CENTRE
Our services also include a Resource Centre in Ballinasloe. There we offer support and advocacy tp people in the area who are homeless or at risk of homelessness. Our Resource Centre allows our clients to engage in social interaction, attend health clinics, and even get food and a hot drink.

ADDITIONAL SUPPORT
All of our clients are supported by the Health and Well-being Team which offer support in the areas of health, addiction, life skills, training and much more. The team consists of a Registered General Nurse, Addiction Counselors, an Occupational Therapist and an Employment and Activities Facilitator.
