OUR CHARITY PARTNER
HELPING OUR COMMUNITY
FOR A WARMER FUTURE.
Tinteán Housing Association has been running since 1999 providing accommodation with support for women as well as providing emergency accommodation for families in Waterford City. What sets Tinteán aside from homelessness shelters is that they address the issues that bring their women into homelessness in the first place. They provide different programmes and classes to support them and decrease their chances of finding themselves in a homelessness situation once again.
Although Tinteán receive funding from the council and other government agencies, it is only to fund staffing. Any programmes or additional supports that Tinteán provide are entirely funded through donations from the public. BuskAid believes that Tinteán provide a vital service in Waterford and offer a visionary solution to the homelessness crisis and we are proud to have them as one of our charity partners since 2016.
