Abode (Doorway to Life)

Doorway to life began services in 1986 in Mahon, a suburb of Cork City. Over the years as we developed our services, our original building was not fit for purpose.Working in partnership with Cork City Council we developed a new purpose built facility in Kilbrack Grove, Blackrock. This enables us to offer enhanced services and facilities to service users with a physical and sensory disability.
