For over 10 years, Villa Pierrot has contributed to improving the living conditions of young single mothers with children aged 5 who have a modest income.
We are the only resource providing transitory housing to young single mothers on the Memphremagog RCM territory. We prevent social isolation, school dropouts, and poverty by supporting residents in the development of their financial and emotional independence, as well as their empowerment.
To support a greater number of single mothers, Villa Pierrot launched a large-scale project that will be developed over the next years in collaboration with our valued partners.
The context of the COVID pandemic has hit women hard, even more so for single mothers, and this reinforces the urgency and importance of advancing this project.
Increase support to young single mothers across the Memphremagog RCM. By gradually increasing our capacity from 21 to 200 mothers, the actualization of our mission and that of our partners will be exponential!
RESOURCE SPACES, different journeys, a single destination!
A project adapted to the diversity and uniqueness of each single mother’s journey towards their well-being and that of their children, all at a single destination!
A project allowing to:
Enhance the available SPACES in our current facilities, to provide the necessary RESOURCES to the Villa Pierrot residents by recovering, as of September 2021, the premises occupied by the CPE (more than 3 000 sq. ft.) and by adding a daycare service;
Open more SPACES within our facilities to provide RESOURCES to young single mothers who do not live at the Villa Pierrot through external services focused on creating relationships, and exploring and discovering personal strengths through experience. Receive structured and relevant support to achieve their life project to improve their living conditions and that of their children;
These external services will materialize through the coordination of dynamic, adaptable programming thanks to the contribution of our many partners. Whether through activities and exploratory projects (entrepreneurship, arts, outdoors, etc.), academic support (completing high school, undertaking post-secondary studies, homework assistance, scholarships), or access to various services facilitated by the opportunities provided by the on-site daycare service;
Facilitate SPACES throughout the RCM’s territory in collaboration and cooperation with partners to offer diverse programming of travelling activities and make RESOURCES available near the living environments of single mothers.
