RIAI Simon Open Door 2013 took place over the weekend of 11th & 12th May 2013 raising €42,470 which will help the Simon Communities tackle homelessness in Ireland. It is the participation and commitment of the general public and RIAI Architects which make this event such a success
This was the 9th year of the RIAI Simon Open Door campaign which has raised more than an amazing €330,000 . We look forward to celebrating the 10th anniversary of this campaign in 2014.
The Simon Communities throughout Ireland provide the best possible care, accommodation and support for people experiencing homelessness and those at risk. Together, with people who are homeless, we tackle the root causes, promote innovative responses and urge the government to fulfill its commitments. Simon delivers support and service to almost 5,000 individuals and families who experience – or are at risk of – homelessness on an annual basis.
Padraig O'Leary was the lucky winner of the €500 worth of IKEA product kindly donated by IKEA to the Simon Open Door campaign
