About Us

Few of us are satisfied with retreating from the world and just thinking about ourselves. In Homeless Care, we want our training and coaching to manifest and be of benefit. Therefore, we vow to wake up not just for ourselves but for the welfare of the young homeless people of Kildare.

History

HC-CLG was founded by a group of local concerned individuals in Naas following a hearing from social care worker, Paula Mc Hale, on national radio where she describes the homeless problem with young homeless adults out of state care in the Kildare area.

The Company was incorporated in December 2014 and Charitable Status and Approved Housing Body Status were applied for and granted in June/July 2015.

A suitable derelict property was identified on the outskirts of Naas consisting of a farmhouse and outbuildings on 6 acres. CAS government funding was applied for the purchase and refurbishment of which was partially approved in February 2016 and the sale closed in September 2016.

The CAS funding was to purchase the property, to convert the outbuildings to 12 studio apartments, and to reroof and refenestrate the farmhouse, but as the CAS funding fell somewhat short and in this regard, Homeless Care CLG is raising the finance to bridge this shortfall.

Planning Permission and Contract Award were completed in November 2019 and initial CAS funding was received in December 2019. The cost of the property was funded initially from director loans. The design team costs were funded from local events and local businesses. The Design Team have been generous and extremely helpful in bringing the project forward to its current state.

It is currently estimated that a further €350,000 is needed to complete the development works phase of the project.

Homeless Care CLG wishes to thank the local businesses organisations and the people of Kildare and Naas for their very generous support to date for our charity.
