Peter McVerry Trust is a charity set up by Fr Peter McVerry to reduce homelessness and the harm caused by drug misuse and social disadvantage. Fr Peter McVerry has been working with young people experiencing homelessness for more than 30 years. In 1974, Fr McVerry moved to Summerhill in Dublin’s north inner-city where he witnessed first hand the problems of homelessness and deprivation. In 1979, he opened a small hostel to provide accommodation for homeless boys between the ages of 12-16. Four years later in 1983, he officially founded The Arrupe Society, a charity to provide housing and support for young people experiencing homelessness as a response to the growing numbers of individuals becoming homeless in Dublin. Peter McVerry Trust is committed to reducing homelessness, the harm caused by substance misuse and social disadvantage. Peter McVerry Trust provides low-threshold entry services, primarily to younger people and vulnerable adults with complex needs, and offers pathways out of homelessness based on the principles of the Housing First model.
