Organisme Villa Pierrot

As a non-profit organization dedicated to independent community action (ACA – action communautaire autonome), we are free to determine our mission, guidelines, approaches, and practices. We have established strong roots in our community and are driven by a community and democratic life meeting the four criteria of independent community action organizations:

  • Being established from an initiative launched by people in the community;
  • Pursuing a social mission of its own that fosters social transformation;
  • Demonstrating civic practices and broad approaches, focused on the problem addressed as a whole;
  • Being overseen by a board of directors independent from the public system.

In 2005, the Centre de la Santé et des Services Sociaux de Memphrémagog revealed the extent of the single-parent situation and its main implications on the territory.

Two years later, in February 2007, the Villa Pierrot was established as a non-profit organization (NPO) on the social and professional integration of young mothers living below the poverty line in the Memphremagog RCM. The first meeting of the Villa Pierrot foundation was held in April 2007. An investment of $2.1M was made through the participation of public and community partners.

Since its official opening on May 1, 2009, the Villa Pierrot team has developed tangible expertise in assisting and supporting young single mothers in need on the professional, family, and personal levels. Today, more than 93 mothers and their 135 children have benefited from skills acquired during their stay.


Based on a recent survey with our clients, partners, and the local community, our services are obviously making a true difference in these mothers’ lives.

In fact, 100% of former Villa Pierrot residents have confirmed that their living conditions improved and would recommend the organization to any single mother!


Every day, Villa Pierrot’s small and wonderful team oversees the smooth running of the organization and cares for mothers and their children.
