CumannIosaef is a company limited by guarantee and a not for profit organisation which was founded in May 1991 to provide a Community Centre for the district surrounding the old St Josephs Industrial School that is Spa Road, Balloonagh, Cahersalee ,Stacks Villas. The centre provides a sports hall where all groups and individuals can come to play Basketball, Football, Soccer etc.
We also provide meeting rooms for educational or fitness purposes.
We run a meals on wheels service for older and vulnerable people but it is also available to anyone wishing to avail of it.
Our day centre provides an in house meals service where people can socialise and meet friends Monday-Friday.
In 2008 we opened a purpose built childcare facility which caters for 60 children.
In 2015 we secured funding through TUSLA Child and family Agency to employ a Family Support Worker to assist families in whatever way they may require.
Our Community Employment Projects have proven to be a valuable and needed resource for the community we cater too, by providing grass cutting, painting, home help and light maintenance services for older and vulnerable people in Tralee and the surrounding areas. We also provide employees to assist other organisations dealing with older and vulnerable people.
Our Jobs Club provides courses in interview techniques and CV preparation and caters for 450 people a year.
With the commitment and enthusiasm of our staff in areas of Community Development, CumannIosaef has been able to go from strength to strength throughout the years.
CumannIosaef is funded through various Government Departments and is run by a Board of Management.
We would like to offer our sincere thanks to all our patrons and to agencies such as DEASP, Pobal, HSE , without whose help we would not be able to provide this valuable service.
