La Maison Jacqueline: A Third House for the Most Wounded Women
Opened in 2015, Maison Jacqueline (MJ) is an emergency shelter dedicated to helping women whose health is the most deteriorated and who are in a state of complex and chronic post-traumatic stress. Their state of isolation is extreme, their relational capacities are greatly diminished, and they are often refused in other institutions.
MJ is the first step in a long healing process, which will later continue at Maison Olga – a medium-term housing facility, and then at Centre Dahlia, a supportive housing facility that helps women transition toward independent living (20 studios available for approximately two years). MJ offers access to all the services provided by Herstreet: accommodation, meals, therapy, psycho-relational support, rehabilitation activities and integration into housing.
