Young mothers and their children need support and care. Coolock House offers 24-hour supported accommodation for young women aged up to 25 years who are pregnant or parenting and are homeless or at risk of homelessness.

Coolock House provides a safe and secure environment in individual fully-furnished family units.  Support is offered to assist with pregnancy or parenting challenges, personal goal setting, education, training, building independent living skills and their transition into long-term housing.

The safety and well-being of children is paramount. Coolock House provides an on-site playgroup, crèche, specialist children’s workers and links to child care providers, community health services and other children’s supports. This assistance can continue into the future beyond their time at Coolock.
