Cœur à sœur Program

For single mothers in difficulty

Welcome Hall Mission’s Cœur à sœur program helps girls, women ormothers in difficult situations.

The growing number of young women coming to Welcome Hall seeking help sensitized us to their needs and led us to develop a program to provide assistance for women and mothers with children up to 5 years of age. They receive material, emotional and psychological support after an evaluation of their needs.

They receive advice and useful material for babies:

  • diapers
  • milk
  • clothes
  • accessories.. etc…

Group meetings and one-on-one sessions teach parenting skills.

Help for meals

We provide daily dinners at the Mission, and young mothers are invited to share these meals. We also provide food baskets where needed.

Health services

Medical consultations are offered each Tuesday and Wednesday by a nurse from the Faubourgs CLSC and also by a nurse hired by Welcome Hall Mission. Vaccination campaigns are also organized periodically.

In cases of a severe illness, the young mother and her child are referred to the nearest hospital, accompanied by the nurse.

Pre-employability Program

Prepared for the workforce

In partnership with Emploi-Québec within the PASS-Action program with the Montreal Educational and Pedagogical Resource Center (CREP), the Mission offers a possibility for women who have been away from the work place, or excluded from it, to undertake pre-employability training to facilitate their return to the workforce.
