Together, we are helping women experiencing homelessness to begin a new chapter in their lives. The women who come to our doors have their own stories and backgrounds, but they all have one thing in common: they are without a support system and are in urgent need of shelter. For 25 years, the Patricia Mackenzie Pavilion has been a place of unconditional welcome and a safe place to stay for all the women who come through its doors.

In 2017-18

women used our services, including 119 for the first time.
women participated in Étape + coaching programs designed to enable women to begin or continue their personal journey.

Safe, Affordable housing for women

27 women who were previously homeless living in affordable, permanent apartments throughout Montreal, all thanks to Les Voisines dans la communauté in partnership with the federal government.

29 studio apartments nestled in our Lise Watier Pavilion, facing the lively Maisonneuve Market in the Mercier-Hochelaga Maisonneuve borough of Montreal.

10 units completely renovated - Les Voisines de Lanaudière, in a charming, fully renovated residential building directly in the heart of the Plateau neighbourhood, thanks to a generous donation from the Marcelle and Jean Coutu Foundation, led by its President, Marie-Josée Coutu. The housing initiative named Les Voisines de Lanaudière, promotes social inclusion, diversity and a true sense of community.
