StreetSmart believes in a society where all people are treated with equal value. ‘They are Us’. While the word ‘home’ conjures feelings of warmth, family, friendship and love. To be homeless is to be alone, with no one to care about you.
Tackling homelessness is not just about providing shelter from the elements, it is about providing advice, advocacy and education, but above all, care within a community that can be called ‘home’.
“There is a lot that happens around the world we cannot control. We cannot stop earthquakes, we cannot prevent droughts, and we cannot prevent all conflict, but when we know where the hungry, the homeless and the sick exist, then we can help.” Jan Schakowsky
StreetSmart believes in acting together and acting locally
We believe in social inclusion and it is our mission to facilitate and grow a pro-active community alongside the hospitality industry to bring about sustainable change for people experiencing homelessness.
StreetSmart aims to be a bridge: developing fresh, creative and innovative fundraising campaigns to support already existing grassroots organisations delivering services, housing, advocacy and solutions for those at risk of homelessness in Ireland today.
