Teach Na nDaoine Family Resource Centre Monaghan

Who we are

  • Teach na nDaoine Family Resource Centre originates from a small group of local volunteers who set up an informal local residents association to provide various community activities and to tackle environmental issues in the area.
  • In April 1998 the formal Mullaghmatt/Cortolvin Community House Management Committee was formed and began operating from a two-bedroom house at 166 Mullaghmatt.
  • As the project grew and expanded, there was an overwhelming demand for services and supports for which the small community house could not cater. This led to the need to build a multi-purpose facility within the area.
  • Funding was sought and received and Teach na nDaoine Family Resource Centre was built and opened its doors in January 2005.
  • In total Teach na nDaoine maintains 37 employed positions in the centre and 32 volunteer positions.
