Action Nouvelle Vie
Founded in 1993 in Longueuil, Quebec, Action Nouvelle Vie helps families living with poverty, with a special focus on the well-being of children. Through various programs and services, they provide support to more than a thousand families on a weekly basis.
‘‘Le 2159” intervenes with at risk youth (17-25 years) in preventing and countering delinquency, homelessness and sexual exploitation. This transitional housing program provides housing stability, psychosocial support and educational workshops, and can house 16 permanent residents, with an additional room for emergencies. The Lighthouse Keeper Initiative will add an on-site mental health clinical nurse to the intervention team and will have a more effective impact on the young people they help.
