Over 270 residents at the centre, formerly the Ibis Hotel in Galway, face dispersal to other locations after they were given less than a week's notice of its closure.
The Lisbrook House Support Group has organised a demonstration in Eyre Square at lunchtime, calling on the Minister for Justice Alan Shatter to postpone the decision.
Spokesperson Christina Nic Dhonnacha said the residents at Lisbrook House do a lot of voluntary work and are well integrated in Galway.
