05 Oct House in Glenageary donated to St John of God Housing Association
We are incredibly indebted to the O’Hare family to have made this beautiful contribution of their four bedroom house in Glenageary to Saint John of God Community Services so that their son can continue in residential care. We are delighted to add this wonderful residence to our service.
The house is the former family home of Teresa O’Hare and her late husband Tom, who says the decision to hand it over to the Service was one they made many years ago, while making future plans for their only son Ryan who is a lifelong service user of St John of God Community Services.
The Minister for Disabilities, Anne Rabbitte TD, said it was her great pleasure to open the new residence in Glenageary – “I wish to acknowledge the hard work, the generosity, and the love that has made this opening possible. I want to extend my gratitude to Teresa O’Hare for her generous donation, the commitment of Saint John of God Housing Association, Saint John of God Community Services, the Department of Housing and the HSE to ensure the completion of this house. Collaborative efforts can make a difference. Today, you have all made a difference to the lives of four people and their families.”
Special thanks to Michelle Thunder from Saint John of God Housing Association and Des North from Saint John of God Dublin South East for their efforts in making this a reality. We are very happy for Ryan and his housemates.
