A step toward stability and well-being

PAQ have 16 transition apartment-studio: 9 for men and 6 for women and an accessible apartment for disable person. Tenants participate at a program that give access to services from a full-time psychosocial worker.

Governed by a set of protocols aimed at promoting safety and harmony between residents and with those around them, the transition rooms proposed lease contract for three months to three years period. The experience allowed us to develop an intervention style that is culturally adapted to people from First Nations, Inuit and Metis. Our intervention worker aimed to prevent the come-back to homelessness situation and support the members towards more stability at short, mid and long term and that, in many areas of their life.
