About us

Founded in 1977, Chez Doris is a charitable organization that offers a range of services and programs to meet the most basic and immediate needs of vulnerable women and homeless women. We are the only women’s shelter in Montréal offering 24/7 service. By providing personal hygiene products, health and mental services, housing placement, and more, we strive to meet their needs in an inclusive and non-judgmental environment. Since September 19, 2022, our night shelter, located across the street from our day shelter, also provides emergency housing to 24 women experiencing homelessness.

We respond to the needs of women in precarious circumstances by offering a broad range of services in a safe, caring, and nonjudgmental environment, so that every woman may reach her full potential.

All vulnerable or homeless women in our city feel safe, are treated with dignity, and have opportunities to thrive.

We pride ourselves in our welcoming, secure, inclusive, confidential, respectful, supportive and helpful environment for every woman who passes through our doors.
