Welcome and support services
Short-Term Housing Program for Asylum Seekers
Community Initiatives of the YMCA Residence
Created in 1931, the YMCA Residence promotes social cohesion and the inclusion of some of the most vulnerable members of our society by providing short-term housing for refugees and asylum seekers.
The Residence provides a multitude of services and activities to welcome and support its clients, with the collaboration of PRAIDA, a regional program for the accommodation and integration of asylum seekers managed by the Centre intégré universitaire de santé et de services sociaux (CIUSSS) of West-Central Montreal.
These clients are referred by PRAIDA and the accommodation is not open to the public.
