We provide counselling and support as well as follow-up services for each resident. Thanks to our telephone support service and our external services program, we also help women who do not require a shelter.
Our feminist approach is designed to empower women, restore their self-confidence, and promote their autonomy. Our objective is to oppose domestic violence and diminish its impact on women and children. Our organization takes part in activities aimed at bringing about social change as it relates to domestic violence. We are also members of the Regroupement des maisons pour femmes victimes de violence conjugale (RMFVVC), an association of shelters for women who are victims of domestic violence.
Our organization receives funding from Québec’s Ministère de la Santé et des Services sociaux, the federal government’s Canada Summer Jobs program, and donors at our annual fundraising campaign.
Our shelters are places of respite for women and their children.
We have two houses:
Each resident has a private room with her children.
The workers’ and director’s offices are at the Mother House.
With its large rooms, the Pink House is the perfect place for group activities, counselling sessions, administrative work, follow-ups as part of our post-residential and external services programs, weekly staff meetings, board of directors’ meetings, professional development sessions, etc. It also has a large playroom.
We are women who help women who are victims of domestic violence and their children. We are a close-knit, respectful, and caring team working in the community to end violence.
We need your help to fulfill our mission.
