Helping the Homeless in 2014 – Simon Open Door

This year will be the fifth year that Isabel gives her time for free to the Simon Communities of Ireland.

The Simon Communities of Ireland work with people who experience homelessness and housing exclusion in Ireland. Simon has a vision of society where no one is homeless. All people who are homeless, or at risk of facing homelessness, are given every opportunity to realise their potential to live fulfilled lives in appropriate homes of their own.

The annual Simon Open Door event takes place over Saturday and Sunday, 10th and 11th May 2014. Members of the public can now book a consultation with a RIAI Registered Architect by signing up at www.simonopendoor.ie. The donation of €50.00 will go directly to the Simon Community of Ireland as all Architects are giving their time and expertise for free.

The Simon Communities of Ireland operate in a totally transparent manner. They confirm that there are no salary top up’s, pension top up’s or bonus payments and all Simon Communities produce annual audited accounts.

This year with rising levels of homelessness across the country, Simon more than ever needs support.

Monies raised through the Simon Open Door campaign will go directly to assist some of the most vulnerable people in our society, those without a place to call home.

2014 is the 10th anniversary of the RIAI Simon Open Door initiative. Over the past 10 years, almost €300,000 has been raised for the Simon Communities of Ireland, and over 5000 meetings between architects and members of the public were held.

Anyone can sign up and, in return for a €50 donation, sit down with a registered architect and get ideas for house extensions, new builds, office fit-outs, renovations, etc. From new builds to small extensions or houses that are not functional, the Architect has the most appropriate training and experience to help you with your building project.

You can sign up for an appointment with Isabel Barros Architects on Saturday 10th May directly here, or with other registered Architects at www.simonopendoor.ie. If for some reason these dates do not suit you, please book a time anyway and leave a note asking to have a different date.
