The Hôtel Y Montréal offers one of the best deals on accommodations in downtown Montreal. The difference between sleeping at the YWCA or somewhere else is the fact that all the profits generated by the Hôtel Y Montréal are reinvested in the mission of the YWCA Montreal to develop services for women and girls. Like for example the women’s Y residence.
A turning point program for women
The Women’s Y Residence program is designed for women experiencing a difficult period in their lives, who wish to participate in a social reintegration program. This program offers community living in a secure environment at an affordable cost.
Within a community life setting, a professional team of counsellors accompanies each participant in achieving goals that she has set out for herself, and as specified in her intervention plan. The social reintegration program consists of both individual consultations and group workshops as a means of reinforcing participants’ life skills while promoting their interpersonal capacities.
Learning to recognize their strengths and accomplishments, acquiring a greater measure of autonomy, and improving their quality of life on a social and economic level are just some of the challenges undertaken by the residents. In addition, residents benefit from a wide range of complementary services, including a weekly food bank, a volunteer centre, employment counselling services and personal development workshops.
This program is made possible partly thanks to clients of the Hôtel Y Montréal! For more information, visit the website of the YWCA Montreal.
