Since 1992, Mission Inclusion has supported a wide range of initiatives aimed at improving the living conditions of people experiencing homelessness in Quebec.

Mission Inclusion supports a multitude of efforts to improve the living conditions of people experiencing homelessness (shelters and accommodation, access to housing, food security) and at preventing homelessness among young adults in precarious situations (assistance for young people in difficulty, support for staying in school, training and job market entry, psychosocial support, creation of self-help networks and groups, etc.).
These initiatives that we support across Quebec thanks to your donations help people in difficult situations regain their confidence and (re)claim their place in our society.

Breaking social isolation and fighting homelessness

Mission Inclusion works with organizations whose projects have a lasting impact on the most isolated people in Quebec. The initiatives can be divided into six categories:

Food support

Healthy nutrition is essential for normal development. For people experiencing homelessness, hunger is a recurring problem, which is why Mission Inclusion supports initiatives to ensure the unhoused are fed, such as the cafeteria at the Dans la Rue day centre, where young people can eat for free and meet with outreach workers.

Emergency accommodation

Emergency shelters are necessary to give people experiencing homelessness a safe place to rest temporarily and receive support from outreach workers. The Maison Marie-Frédéric, which we support, provides the only temporary and emergency shelter for unhoused young people aged 17-30 in the Quebec City area.

Upstream approach to protecting young people

Prevention is key to the fight against homelessness. Intervening with youths in precarious situations helps reduce their vulnerability by boosting protections. Les Ateliers Speech encourages young people to stay in school and succeed in their studies through an arts and music-based program at a Trois-Rivières high school.

Outreach work

Outreach is crucial to inform people of the social reintegration services available to them. The EVIT team at the Maison d’hébergement d’urgence in Valleyfield supports people staying there throughout the process.

Keeping people housed

Another key to breaking the pattern of exclusion caused by homelessness is to provide residential stability with professional or community support. Auberge sous mon toit in Granby provides men in difficulty with post-shelter housing support.
