JOIN OUR TEAM – 23 new members joined us in July
Membership is another opportunity to help fund our services and get something back too – Volunteer membership is also an option for those who want to help our veterans.
ONE supports the needs of Irish veterans by the provision of accommodation to homeless veterans in its Veterans’ Homes and the provision of other advice and support to veterans through its nationwide network of 38 Branches and 15 Veteran Support Centres.

Our first hostel opened in response to a number of veterans dying on the streets of Dublin in the late 1980s/early 1990s. Since then, we’ve helped over 1,000+ homeless veterans from all over Ireland who could have faced the same situation. Set against Ireland’s current homelessness crisis, the services of ONE are more vital than ever.
We currently provide almost 20,000 bed nights every year, between Dublin (35 bedrooms), Letterkenny (7 bedrooms) and Athlone (7 bedrooms) and Cobh (5 bedrooms), and our Cork City House (6 bedrooms) is being planned, leading to the availability of 60 bedrooms nationwide for homeless veterans.
