The west Dublin based centre was opened in June 2013 and was funded and built by limited life foundation Atlantic Philanthropies – with that funding set to expire in December.
Last week local Minister for Justice Frances Fitzgerald TD facilitated a meeting with parents and Child and Family Agency CEO Mr Jeyes in an effort to ensure that additional funding can be sourced to keep the centre open.
