HOW YOUR DONATION WILL BE INVESTED

As a result of the pandemic, our operating costs have increased while our revenues have dropped. While we’ve quickly adapted our emergency services to meet COVID-19 requirements, our fundraising events, which normally generate vital funds, have been suspended or cancelled.

Your donation helps to support our actions on the frontline of the pandemic. It will enable us to continue providing psychosocial support and other life-changing services to nearly 4,000 Montrealers who are homeless or at risk of becoming so.

An unprecedented opportunity for real social change

Now is the time to push for more affordable, permanent housing so that our community’s most vulnerable citizens, those without a home, aren’t so vulnerable to begin with. With your support, we can help individuals gain their rightful place in society.

Thank you in advance for your contribution!

Adapted Homelessness Services During a Pandemic

Frontline workers

Our frontline staff work at two hotels requisitioned by the City that are temporarily housing homeless people with negative test results. They deliver nutritious meals to people like Charles, who is staying at Hotel Chrome.

Outreach Initiatives

Intervention counsellor, Vincent, brings food supplies to a newly opened day centre at Place du Canada/St. George’s Church. Homeless and vulnerable people can eat a meal, access bathrooms, and get support from social intervention workers.

Adapted Meal Services

To comply with physical distancing, we’ve adapted meal services: clients are spaced apart in our dining room and one person at a time gets their meal from the kitchen counter.

Housing With Support

Our psychosocial counsellors continue to visit previously homeless women and men in the community to ensure they remain housed. Their visits are adapted to respect physical distancing and PPE guidelines and include food basket delivery for those experiencing food insecurity.

SUPPORT OUR HOUSING SERVICES

Urban Health

This public health crisis shouldn’t take away from other physical and mental health issues affecting homeless people. Our urban health programs continue to treat homeless women and men for severe mental illness and provide regular medical check-ups in our pavilions.

SUPPORT OUR URBAN HEALTH PROGRAMS

Emergency Services

Access to the Webster Pavilion is limited to staff and residents until further notice. Frontline staff wear PPE and everyone must use the handwashing station at the entrance. Regular volunteer activities and fundraising events are all suspended.
