Beyond homelessness… real solutions
For more than 100 years, the Old Brewery Mission has provided Emergency Services for homeless men and women in Montreal such as a safe refuge from the street, nourishing meals, warm showers and clean clothing.
We also offer our clients real solutions to homelessness through dynamic Transition Services and Housing Services. We're dedicated to helping more homeless clients to transition out of shelter life and back into society.
The Old Brewery Mission has also developed its Services for Women division designed to respond to the specific needs of the staggering number of homeless women in Montreal.
The Patricia Mackenzie and Lise Watier pavilions have been specifically designed to meet the needs of homeless women.
More than just responding to the basic needs of housing, food and clothing all provided in a welcoming and secure environment, each woman, if she chooses, is able to take advantage of a variety of services offered on an individual basis. Counsellors guide the women towards the services that they need and help them as they go along. Services, while almost identical to those offered men, have been tailored to meet the particular needs of women.
