Helping us to help the most vulnerable

Emergency Appeal

Covid 19

The current crisis of Covid 19 has presented the greatest challenge our organisation has ever met. 

We are still working with all our clients, providing essential support and accommodation to the most vulnerable in our communities.  The people we support and their families need your support more than ever.

Please help by donating whatever you can, using the Paypal button below. All of your donation will be used for an emergency fund for our service users.  

Together we can make a difference.

Following government guidance regarding social distancing we regret we cannot accept other forms of help at this time.

"This year Ramona House has received many generous donations including, among others, from our local ASDA store in Omagh. We also had three brave souls who ran the Belfast Marathon and raised a large amount of money for us.
We have received donations from many families as a thanks for caring for their loved ones. It humbles our team to see that there is so much gratitude from families and the wider community"

Frances, Service Manager Ramona House, Omagh

Floating Support Teams

Our Floating Support teams work in the community, supporting people to maintain their tenancies. Often this is where we come across the greatest poverty. 

If you have an item that you think could be donated to address this 'hidden' need please contact your local Floating Support Team 

Check out the Contact Details on the 'Our Work' page

With regret we cannot accept any donations of this type at this time 


Amazon Smile

You can donate on Amazon Smile when you shop there. Just pick First Housing from the drop down options.

Thank you!


Other Items

Sometimes when we have to respond urgently to a person in a crisis situation we have to provide the basic needs of toiletries and food.

We are happy to accept such essentials to the individual accommodation projects. Please contact the project of your choice directly.

With regret we cannot accept any donations of this type at this time, but instead please remember your local food bank.
