PasserElle, Montréal

This funding supports 11 second-stage housing apartments and associated supports for women survivors of domestic violence. These services cater primarily to newcomers and immigrant women who have been isolated, controlled by their former spouses, or are otherwise unfamiliar with the Quebec system. A guidance counsellor works with participants to navigate their settlement, and develop their sense of independence. Through workshops and individual support, women receive support to rebuild their lives.

Grant amount: $23,000
