CHEZ DORIS, DAY & NIGHT

In 2021, Chez Doris is preparing to broaden its mission and expand its services with two new points of service: an emergency shelter with 22 beds within walking distance from our day shelter and a permanent residence with 26 apartments in collaboration with the Société habitation de Montréal. These projects will be funded through a major fundraising campaign, “Chez Doris, Day & NIght”, launching in September 2021. Other projects are currently in progress.
