Hotels accommodate the homeless

The Peter McVerry charity has said plans are in place to ensure alternative accommodation can be found for homeless people who are currently staying in hotels once they revecorridorrt back for tourists. 
The charity says 240 people who are homeless have been accommodated in hotels since the beginning of the pandemic.
This week110 people are staying at the hotel, and there are currently no vacancies. As well as shelter, residents get three meals per day provided.
The project is being run by the Peter McVerry Trust with the backing of the Dublin Region Homeless Executive and the HSE.
The hotels charge €90 per night per person, and some of the residents pay up to €40 in rent per week.

 

Pat Doyle, CEO of the Peter McVerry Trust, said that the benefits of the project are clear. 
"They've got their own individual room so they're able to isolate a bit more and able to keep their social distance better. And it's not only people from hostels coming here, we've taken people directly off the streets too," he said.
 
He also pressed the need to get homeless people vaccinated. The HSE is moving onto vulnerable groups and he says the homeless people the charity works with will be part of that group.
