On Friday 15th October, we want everyone in the community to host their own sleep-out in their home or garden and join us online for a safe Shine A Light Night!

Last year, we asked members of the public to sleep-out in their home or garden and join us virtually on Shine A Light Night. We had overwhelming support from families, children, community groups and friends across the country who slept out and raised vital funds for Focus Ireland. As we emerge from the pandemic, we are faced with the reality of a continuing homelessness crisis. We need the support of people 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 your support, 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.
