A Helping Hand to Exit Homelessness
The Homelight App
The Reason for Homelight
Homeless families in Ireland are having difficulties navigating and communicating with the current accommodation support system. People find it hard to reach or use, and are left in the dark about their application progress. Homelight aims to provide these families with access to the services they need to exit homelessness on their smartphone.

Benefits of Homelight
Homelight Aims to Improve the Existing Consolidating Services
By consolidating the many accommodation services into one app, Homelight makes it easier for users to apply for accommodation and progress further to permanent housing.
Homelight guides users through each step of the application for accommodation. It helps users understand and request housing services best suited to their immediate needs.
By giving more agency to the user, Homelight removes barriers and limits placed on people during the accommodation application process.
