Annual report from Focus Ireland
Focus Ireland says the homeless crisis is getting worse - with newborn babies among those living in emergency accomodation.
The charity's annual report shows it helped a record 15,500 people last year.
The charity also helped more than 500 families move out of emergency accomodation and find a permanent place to stay.
Out of Sight. Out of Mind. Just because you don't see a child living on the streets, it doesn't mean they're not homeless. Did you know that almost 4,000 children in Ireland are living in emergency accommodation?

The charity handed over the keys to 176 homes for homeless people last year.
But it says the government will need to provide thousands more to deal with the current crisis.
