Prevention Emergency Rehousing


Everyone had a home once

The right to housing is a fundamental right for everybody! This is why making rehousing possible, facilitating it and maintaining it are three of our key objectives. More specifically, we aim to foster autonomy and residential stability while accompanying people toward social reintegration.

Rehousing programs

With the unhoused population in Montreal growing, we need to find innovative solutions to help more people get off the street—sustainable solutions suited to their circumstances. That’s what we’re doing with our set of rehousing programs tailored to the individual.

Our housing

The housing crisis we're facing in Montreal makes it all the more difficult for people experiencing homelessness to find a place to live. That's why the creation of community housing, whether through new construction or renovation, is one of the three pillars of the Old Brewery Mission.

Mission helped me out of a hole I found myself in and led me to my own furnished place. They really helped me, and I don’t know where I would be without them.

Collaborating with Bread and Beyond

We are fortunate to be partnering with Bread and Beyond on their Essentials Boxes project, an initiative that supports rehousing programs in Montreal by supplying residents with five starter boxes containing items for the kitchen, bedroom, bathroom, pantry and cleaning.

Their contribution makes a big difference in the welcome our residents receive. The cost of setting up a house is something that people leaving the streets, who are often on social assistance, cannot easily afford. They are in a particularly precarious and vulnerable situation once they move in: they have to think about buying furniture, household appliances and the items they need to live in and maintain their home. It isn’t easy for them to feel “at home”; it takes many months to buy what they need, if they ever can. They have to prioritize rent and food. Essentials Boxes make it easier to move into an apartment and they humanize the experience.
