A return to residential stability for 120 people thanks to Projet logement Montréal and its partners
Homelessness takes many forms. A single unfortunate event, a health problem or the loss of a job is enough to turn a life upside down. For these men and women of all ages, finding a home again is the first step towards a return to a more balanced life and a successful social reintegration.
It is in this spirit that the Maison du Père, the Welcome Hall Mission, the Old Brewery Mission and l’Accueil Bonneau joined their networks and expertise to create Projet Logement Montréal in order to build bridges between homeless people who wish to regain residential stability and property owners who have rental dwellings that are available.
They persuaded several partners to take part in the venture, including private and institutional owners who, like the SHDM, adhere to their vision and trust them to accompany each person in the process of getting out of homelessness.
Within just a few months, Projet Logement Montréal has already reached half its goal for the first two years, with more than 120 people who have found a home and a healthy living environment. Today, the organization has nearly 200 candidates willing to engage in the experience and it is in search of affordable housing.
Thanks to financial guarantees and continuous psychosocial support, the partnership allows owners to participate in the project with confidence and to find tenants whose primary aspiration is to regain a home.
