Reopening of the Ricochet Center

The Ricochet Center reopen its doors in Pierrefonds-Roxboro on Monday, July 8

Monday, July 8, 2024 marks the long-awaited reopening of the Ricochet Center. The only housing resource in the West Island of Montreal for people experiencing homelessness and residential instability, Ricochet will once again be able to offer shelter to 48 people.

A new haven of peace

 

The Centre de spiritualité ignatienne de Montréal has generously agreed to rent their building to Ricochet for one year, the previous tenants having recently vacated the premises. Thus, for the next year, the Ricochet Center will be located at the following address:

9451 boulevard Gouin Ouest, Pierrefonds (Québec) H8Y 1T2

Our new temporary facility will be a haven of peace for Ricochet's beneficiaries to relax and recharge their batteries. The huge wooded lot on the waterfront, combined with better adapted facilities, including a kitchen, cafeteria and more showers, will meet our needs perfectly.

Essential services available 24/7

 

Ricochet's 24/7 housing service will enable beneficiaries to rest, eat, shower, wash their clothes and be redirected to other specialized services as needed. They will also benefit from the support and guidance of psychosocial workers, a practice at the heart of our organization.

 

 

Ricochet's psychosocial workers play a vital role for our beneficiaries. Their primary mission is to provide support and assistance to people facing psychological, social or emotional difficulties.

 

In a stable, safe and comforting environment, the Ricochet Center, true to the organization's values of caring and inclusiveness, welcomes women, couples, pets, people from the LGBTQ2S+ community, as well as all cultural communities, including First Nations.

 

Shuttle services and social mediation also remain in place to facilitate access to Ricochet's services and foster harmonious relations within the community.

Give the opportunity to bounce back in the West Island

 

We knew that the Ricochet Center wouldn't be closed for long, because our organization is known for accomplishing the impossible. With the support of the City of Montreal, we overcame this challenge, and we're extremely proud of it. As of July 8, we'll be ready to offer shelter and hope to our beneficiaries once again, helping them bounce back towards residential stability and social reintegration at their own pace.
