Funds Raised

For Shine a Light Night 2021, we are asking our Business Leader supporters to sleep out for one night to raise vital funds for people experiencing homelessness. We have two socially distant events taking place; one in Dublin City Centre and another on Cork's Historic Spike island. So, please join us and give one night to change a life.

Last year, business leaders raised over €740,000, which is hugely impactful to the people we support. As we emerge from the pandemic, we are faced with the reality of a continuing homelessness crisis. We need the support of business leaders across Ireland to raise vital funds and awareness around the issue of homelessness.

There are 930 homeless families in Ireland; 2,129 are children.

With the support of business leaders, Focus Ireland can move a family out of homelessness into a secure home of their own. We reach families who are facing critical situations early to help prevent them from becoming homeless. We also offer long term solutions to people experiencing homelessness to ensure they do not re-enter homelessness.
