211 is implemented in the MRC de L'Assomption
The good news of the day ! The implementation of the 211 for all citizens, young people and older people, is now a reality at the MRC de L'Assomption. If we are a senior, a parent, a caretaker, a newcomer, there is a moment when our life situation topples over without any previous signs ; the death of a loved one, divorce, health problems, lost of employement, feelings of isolation. In these cases, it is good to know that social and community resources are available to help us in times of need. The 211 service is the tool to do so.

Celebrating Welcome Mission Hall !

Celebrating Welcome Mission Hall !
The Gazette ran a great story on March 31 on the role and the history of Welcome Mission Hall/Mission Bon Accueil. An organization of any kind, but especially an organization that helps low-income and homeless people for the last 125 years, that should be celebrated ! Their resilience to continue their mission over the years is highly commandable. Great job, Mission Hall !
