These are the stories of just some of the thousands of people our expert service advisors have been able to help from the brink of homelessness.

You can depend on us to be by your side, every step of the way.

Here at Threshold we help generations of individuals and families, meeting uncertainty in the depths of a housing disaster with empathy and knowledge. Never before have our frontline services been so needed. The handful of moving stories below show the impact we have on renters’ lives. 

Niamh & Aoife’s Story

When Niamh got the devastating news from her landlord that she would have to move out, the first thing she did was take her eight-year-old daughter Aoife in her arms and give her a big hug, she didn’t know it, but her Mam was terrified.

I know I’m much more than that. I know all about the years I’ve worked as a nurse – a job I love dearly. I know about the rare medical condition that forced me to stop work. I know how dedicated I am to raising my Aoife, how much she means to me.
