Homelessness isn't a choice.

Most of the men who come to Maison du Père bring with them a painful past, full of violence, poverty and abandonment. These experiences drove them to isolation. For others, a series of unfortunate events (job loss, divorce, depression) caused them to lose their footing. 

Homelessness is a combination of factors specific to each person, but it is also a choice we make as a society. Poverty, lack of public housing and difficulty accessing healthcare and social services are often elements that trigger or aggravate the problem. 

One thing is certain: all of these men are alone, with neither a social nor family network to help. 

This is why Maison du Père exists…
