Their aim is the provision of supports and related educational and practical interventions to support and facilitate a range of on-going services, targeted at supporting the parents, family members, partners and young people living with impact of substance misuse.


Novas Initiatives  has become one of Ireland’s main providers of services to adults who are homeless. Their client groups are among those most disadvantaged in society and include many who are not served by mainstream services and often are excluded even from existing voluntary services.  Novas works with some of society’s most marginalised individuals and they are a non-profit organisation working with single adults, families and children who are disadvantaged and socially excluded; primarily those who are homeless or at risk of being homeless. They offer bespoke, client-centred services, based on empirical evidence of more than a decade’s experience of working with people who are homeless in Ireland. They believe everyone is entitled to a home.
