Back in June, la Maison Tangente acquired a neighboring triplex.
Starting this fall, we intend to refurbish this residential building, located at 4224-4228 Adam Street in Montreal, in order to offer affordable housing to struggling youths who have graduated from an initial stay at our shelter. Accommodation at our provisional housing could last for up to three years, and we hope to offer this service starting March 31, 2022.
The six available bedrooms as well as common areas to be shared among lodgers will be split between the two top floors; while on the ground floor will be located offices for the staff, a commercial kitchen for community kitchen activities, and a large common room where various activities and workshops will be hosted.
Individually tailored intervention services and communal support will be available to facilitate residents’ progress towards autonomy, financial independence and responsibilization, in an atmosphere of utmost respect for their values, their interests and their dignity.
This project was made possible thanks to the financial contribution of the Canadian government via its National Housing Strategy as well as to the support of the city of Montreal.
