is known for its Shelter, a place where homeless men can eat and sleep.

But it does so much more,


because every street should have an exit...

«  A little about History...

Since 1969, Maison du Père has been supporting men ages 25 and older who are experiencing homelessness. Trinitarians have managed the Maison for 35 years.

The organization was named by its first residents, a dozen street people who Father Guy Laforte welcomed night after night into a home he had renovated for and with them on Rue St-André.

The chaplain had a clear goal when he created this organization: “I do not want to set up a charitable organization that will only maintain their misery. […]
I want them to become responsible…With me, I want them to rediscover a reason for living by learning
that they can still be useful.

What are
the main
causes of homelessness?
