L’ Aiguillage: History
The organization was founded in 1993 by two volunteers involved in the field. Aware of the marginalization of youth, they decided to set up L’ Aiguillage to help them.
L’ Aiguillage offers three types of help: street outreach, emergency shelter and residential stability with follow-up.
The street outreach workers, the emergency shelter and the residential stability and follow-up counsellors are available for people going through various difficult situations. Several services are offered:
- Welcome and emergency referrals;
- Emergency shelter for 24 hours, including meals;
- Emergency food and clothing;
- Counselling for runaway or suicidal youth;
- Regional concertation on homelessness.
L’ Aiguillage offers emergency shelter for young adults 18 and over, as well as, other services for all ages.
The L’ Aiguillage services cover the Vaudreuil-Soulanges area, the MRC du Haut Saint-Laurent and the MRC de Beauharnois-Salaberry.
