ONE provides 51 Beds around the country to Homeless Veterans.

ONE’s services are available to ALL veterans of the Defence Forces, and our homes are available to both male and female veterans, within a safe and secure environment. From time to time, ONE will also facilitate homeless veterans from other countries living in Ireland.

Most of our veterans have had extensive service in the Defence Forces, serving with distinction both at home and on overseas missions. However, for one reason or another, they now find themselves homeless and in need.

ONE currently provides accommodation (board and lodging) for approximately 51 veterans, who otherwise would be homeless. Our veterans contribute on a means basis towards their keep, which includes all of the facilities that one would expect in a normal home.
