Outside St Patrick’s Hostel, Limerick
“We offer an opportunity to the men to get their lives back together”
Gerry White, Manager of St Patrick's Hostel, Limerick
St Patrick's Hostel opened in December 2002 and provides short-term accommodation and care services for 47 homeless men. A key feature of the service is the agreed care-plan that is drawn up with every person, aimed at helping him identify and access the services or skills he needs to move on and live independently.
"Hostels are no longer just about providing shelter and some food, they are a stable force for the person at a time of crisis in their lives” says Gerry White.
