Churchtown

Sophia operates a small project in Churchtown (through Dun Laoghaire/Rathdown County Council). The Churchtown Project consists of a three storey, nineteenth century detached house, named Camberley House, split into six two-bed apartments. This Project offers temporary emergency accommodation for families.

Referrals come through the Homeless Executive. The team consists of a project manager, a support worker and three shift attendants. Staff are present Monday to Friday from 9 a.m. to 9 pm and Saturday and Sunday from 3pm to 9pm. Each tenant has a keyworker and a holistic care plan is done for all tenants. Practical support is also offered in a range of areas such as home management, budgeting, shopping and cooking.
