Patro Laval, a partner of families

Patro Laval is an organization created in 1910 by the St-Vincent-de-Paul Congregation, located in the St Sauveur neighbourhood. In the summer, it is a day camp for children, and during the rest of the year it is a family space that welcomes everyone, young and old. FDG funds the Family Space project, which consists of a support program for families, respite activities and family activities. Family Space encourages families to get closer by organizing parent-child activities. (more…)

A satchel full of surprises

In Mongolia, Adolescent Development Center (ADC), as part of the Dream Key project, the young girls were invited to create handicraft items as an alternative to prostitution. Knowing that the foundation funding this project was Canadian, the girls sent a handbag to our offices, which we offered as a draw prize at our last consultation meeting. Chantal Larouche, coordinator of Maison Richelieu, was the winner of that handbag and decided to use it as a tool for mobilizing the girls of the Maison. The satchel has become a suggestion “box”. Yet the girls at this shelter, much affected by this story, created solidarity scarves that were issued to Dulmaa L., our coordinator in Mongolia, when she came to the Maison in June. As a result, contact has been established between the Quebec and Mongolian realities.
