Dublin Simon Community’s vision is to make home a reality for those experiencing homelessness and Chester House delivers on this by providing safe and secure long-term housing for people with high support needs.
The new development is an extension of an existing 22-bed service, with an additional 20 en-suite units tucked away in a quiet location off Dublin’s North Circular Road.
The facility has been designed for the specific needs of residents, combining comfortable and private accommodation with shared social, recreational and therapeutic areas. All new bedrooms are accessible and there are catering and laundry facilities on-site. Additionally, a landscaped courtyard garden provides a peaceful outdoor space.
Dublin Simon Community staff support residents with life skills, health and welfare, education and training to increase their ability to maintain independent or semi-independent living.
A new resident had this to say: “I love this place with a passion. I feel safe here and people are looking out for me. This place is better than the best hotel and I’m so proud to have my own place to call home again.” Construction of this 20-unit extension was privately funded through the Capital Development programme within Dublin Simon Community.
