Focus Ireland’s mission:

‘We need to challenge our society to think and act differently. We are committed to challenging everything about homelessness; the causes, systemic failures, people’s perceptions and how it is tackled. We challenge ourselves in how we allocate resources to maximise our ability to prevent people from falling into homelessness and to help people find and keep a home. Homelessness is wrong and we have to make that felt in everything we do and say.’
