We need 150k to provide extra living rooms in two chalets. #Cycle4StMarys
St. Mary of the Angels is home to 75 adults with moderate to profound physical and intellectual disabilities. It is set on a peaceful 17 acre campus in beautiful, rural surroundings near Beaufort, in the heart of the local community in County Kerry. There are 10 houses, a day centre and special school on the campus. Residents and service users benefit from excellent onsite facilities, services and therapies. In 2016, residents’ parents and friends united to ensure the long-term survival of our loved ones home. Our mission is to improve residents’ lives, enhance their living conditions and maintain HIQA registration.
A key HIQA requirement is that residents experience comfort and privacy in their home. Management at St. Mary of the Angels and the SMOA Parents and Relatives Association are working to achieve this by providing more space in two of the chalets. Plans have been drawn up and planning permission has been granted. Funds from the 2019 ROK Charity Cycle will enable us to start construction.
We will also continue to use the funds to make each day meaningful and happy for all those living in St. Mary of the Angels.
