"We have reached a point where we are almost accepting homelessness as normal," said spokesperson Liz Kavanagh Wilders
It is not normal and it is not acceptable.It needs to be challenged and it needs to end.
We Housing Action Kildare try to Highlight, Advocate for those who need it. We have a winter care kit collection of toiletries , hats, gloves and scarves with drop off points in Teach Dara Kildare Town and The Eating Place in Athy. Thanks to St Mark's school in Newbridge for their continued support and great the great banner they made for us for the night."
