Centraide supports community agencies in the neighbourhoods and districts of Laval, Montreal Island and the South Shore, in order to help people in a situation of poverty and social exclusion. Each area is studied thoroughly to identify local needs and to determine how local social actors pool their efforts to meet these needs.
Implemented in the Montreal/Laval/L’Assomption region, the Société de Saint-Vincent de Paul's mission is to provide help to any person in a difficult situation, regardless of language, culture or religion. Founded on the actions of our volunteers and their desire to create meaningful relationships, our interventions aim to lend an ear as well as a hand and companionship to our community’s most vulnerable individuals, through our food assistance, stay-in-school or social integration programs or through an access to basic material necessities.
Our goal is simple: impact the lives of those experiencing difficulties and stresses in a significant, positive way, and encourage self-empowerment in all those in need of support. We also invite you to join in our efforts as a volunteer, and develop your skills while lending a valuable helping hand. For children, youth and families, seniors, people living with HIV/AIDS.
