Mission Statement

Vision

An Ireland that supports all those on the margins and upholds their rights to full inclusion in society.

Mission

Peter McVerry Trust is committed to reducing homelessness and the harm caused by drug misuse and social disadvantage. Peter McVerry Trust provides low-threshold entry services, primarily to younger persons with complex needs, and offers pathways out of homelessness based on the principles of the Housing First model and within a framework that is based on equal opportunities, dignity and respect.

Aims

  • To target those most marginalised in society and offer a safe, challenging and supportive environment through our service provision.
  • To treat participants with warmth and respect and actively encourage involvement in all aspects of their own support plan.
  • To offer a comprehensive package of support that will provide the best opportunity possible for them and assist them in planning a pathway out of homelessness or drug use, or if they continue to use drugs, to assist them toward some level of stabilisation in order to live a life of dignity, with respect and opportunity.
  • To assist each person to re-establish himself or herself in the community and their move towards greater independence.
