The H.O.P.E. Mission...
To offer those who are suffering with drug, alcohol and other addictions an opportunity to become addiction free /abstinent.
To support families that have been harmed by the effects of addiction.
Through education/prevention programmes to facilitate young people and adults in the area to remain free from substance abuse.
To provide advocacy services for our clients to help them achieve an improved lifestyle through education, employment, better housing and healthcare.
H.O.P.E. is a small community project in Dublin's north inner city. We work with people from the community who have been negatively impacted by drug and alcohol abuse.
We are funded through the North Inner City Drugs and Alcohol Task Force. We are a registered chairity.
In March 2003, we first opened our office in North Strand, Dublin 3. In January 2008 we merged with ICON Drugs Support Services and in March 2010 moved to a new premises in Killarney Court, Dublin 1. We are a small project, with just three permanent staff, as well as a CE worker, student placements and volunteers. We operate on a very small budget while demand for our services increases year after year.
HOPE is a valuable part of the north inner city community and we will do everything in our power to continue to provide services in this community for many years to come.
