I met Andrea Clarke, the director of this bilingual organization (the French name is À Deux Mains) at their offices on Sherbrooke Street, while they were waiting to occupy their new location on Benny Street in NDG, which was awarded to them by the city of Montreal. They are scheduled to move to the old library this fall. This will allow them to coordinate a number of activities in a single location. The agreement with the city provides that the building is transferred to them free of charge (more…)
Although we say the Maison is for people aged 0 to 100, it is families with children under the age of 12 that make up most of our clientele. While it is inclusive and open to all, the Maison focuses on the most vulnerable families, who are directed to the multi-resource centre by teachers, school administrations or health and social services (more…)
When I have housework and the kids are annoying, I put on music and dance with them at the same time; we all have fun!

Cycling with Bon Courage
From Place Benoît in the City of Saint-Laurent, 30 young people, aged 12 to 17 from roughly 10 countries, cycled 250 km around Lac Saint-Jean. This cycling tour challenge, organized by the Centre Bon Courage, seeks to enable young people to step outside their usual living environment in order to engage in a great sports and human adventure. Having that experience subsequently enables them to find the strength and courage to deal with hardship.
