Stories from those we support

Our stories come from real people who have been faced with the trauma of homelessness. At Galway Simon, the client is always at the heart of what we do. Every client and situation is different, but one thing always remains the same – we always believe in people and accept them as they are.

For those that Galway Simon Community supports, our aim is to help people to leave homelessness behind them for good. Read their inspirational stories below.

Dennis’ Story

Dennis’ Story

“A lovely fella called Noel, who’s been working with me since the 80s, handed me a key and said ‘This is the key to your apartment. It’s your home now, as long as you want it.’ That was a big step for me and I can hardly begin to describe how good it felt.”
