Mid-Ulster & South Tyrone Association for the Single Homeless (M.U.S.T. Hostel) was founded in 1984 as a direct result of several deaths, in the 1970s, from exposure. With the support from several voluntary organisations the Association has grown from strength to strength and now provides accommodation for 20 single homeless people both male and female.Find Out More
Our mission is to provide accommodation, support and help, tailored to the specific needs of homeless people in Mid-Ulster and South Tyrone Area. M.U.S.T. Hostel aims to deliver a modern supported housing service which is flexible and has a holistic approach to the individual in order to meet our Service Users’ increasingly complex needs.
I arrived at the M.U.S.T. Hostel in May 2005, where I was offered a bed as I could no longer afford private rental accommodation. I also had an alcohol problem. The staff were extremely supportive of me and offered plenty of sound advice. I was transferred into the move-on flats in September 2005 as staff felt that I had become more independent. I did struggle with alcohol whilst living in the flats but with the continued support of the staff I finally feel like I have made an achievement. I have not touched alcohol or cigarettes for 7 weeks and I am currently in the process of moving into a 2 bedroom flat in the Cookstown area.
