YMCA Homelessness Assistance – Dialogue

Supporting homeless people

Like every big cities, downtown Montréal and downtown Québec have a large concentration of people who are homeless and likely to face issues such as social profiling, substance abuse, mental and physical health problems, and legal troubles. 

To support people who are living in or at risk of being in situations of homelessness, the YMCA founded Dialogue in 1997, in collaboration with Tandem Montréal and Destination Centre-Ville. Our mission is to help these individuals gain stability and improve their quality of life.

The team works in partnership with community and institutional resources in the area and acts as a hub referring, connecting and accompanying people to them.

“Dialogue’s staff really helped me get off the street by supporting me in my endeavours. If they hadn’t been there, I would probably be dead!”
