Updated: Dec 22, 2019

An information session on the Empower the Family project takes place on Thursday 16th May at 9:30am in Dogpatch Labs, The CHQ Building, Custom House Quay, Dublin.

Empower the Family was established in 2018 by Deborah Somorin. We aim to help break the poverty cycle experienced by families & young people in disadvantaged communities. We plan to do this by breaking barriers to higher education, such as access to affordable & quality housing and childcare. You can find out more at the link below.

ETF, with the support of Dublin City Council and the ICSH is currently applying for Approved Housing Body status and are examining a range of options regarding developing housing options. We are also exploring potential partnership arrangements with existing AHB’s who may have developments in pipeline or who might be interested in getting involved with the project.
