The event

The Old Brewery Mission is proud to invite you to the 2024 edition of the Mission pour Elles Gala, set to take place at Espace Gare Viger on May 29, 2024.

With the theme of 25 Years of Dedication, this event aims to raise funds for our projects and programs dedicated to women at risk or experiencing homelessness.

As the number of women facing homelessness increases in Montreal, it's crucial to maintain and enhance the solutions available to help them transition off the streets in the long term. Recognizing the unique challenges faced by women in this situation, we are committed to developing tailored services to meet their specific needs.

Program :

  • Cocktail reception
  • Performance by Kim Richardson and the Blok Note Big Band
  • Auction

Thank you for supporting the Old Brewery Mission.

All proceeds from the event will benefit the Old Brewery Mission Women's Services. Your support and generosity are crucial for us to continue guiding these women towards sustainable reaffiliation and residential stability.

Women's Services

For 25 years, the Patricia Mackenzie Pavilion has been a cornerstone for housing services catering to vulnerable women in Montreal. Operating round the clock, every day of the year, our intervention team assists hundreds of women annually on their journey towards sustainable reaffiliation.

These women receive comprehensive psychosocial support to stabilize their living circumstances and progress at their own pace towards finding a permanent place they can call home.

Furthermore, the Old Brewery Mission has expanded its support with 51 housing units dedicated to women, providing them with a safe and secure environment to call home. Additionally, our Voisines dans la communauté program facilitates the transition of women into private housing while ensuring they continue to receive essential psychosocial support.

In 2023, we proudly inaugurated 13 new semi-private rooms, marking a farewell to the second-floor dormitories in our Patricia Mackenzie Women's Pavilion. This expansion embodies our commitment to sustainable solutions aimed at breaking the cycle of homelessness.

In figures (2022-2023)
