Comment nous soutenir ?
Every 2 days, a woman or a girl dies because of violence in Canada, according to the 2022 reports of the Canadian Femicide Observatory for Justice and Accountability.

To prevent these femicides, we need to continue providing support services dedicated to young women who are victims of abuse. The continuum of services we offer allows us to support young abused women who come to us for help at different stages of their lives and to provides individualized support for each young woman based on their needs.

The women who seek help from L'Arrêt-Source have already experienced several forms of abuse: domestic or spousal violence, honor-based violence, sexual abuse, sexual exploitation, human trafficking, cyber-violence, and they continue to suffer the impacts of the abuse: poverty, drug addiction, homelessness, mental health problems, etc.

The women we counsel come from all social backgrounds and all regions of Quebec. All of them suffer or have suffered from abuse and are determined to make changes in their lives.

Discover testimonials from our counselling team

Our counselling team is multidisciplinary: social worker, criminologist, sexologist, addiction worker, etc. They accompanies women in a personalized way to support them towards better social inclusion.

For each team member who testified, working at L’Arrêt-Source means sharing common values. The explanations for their commitment are multiple, but the desire to support others, the feeling of being concerned as a woman and their life experience form the cornerstone of their involvement at L’Arrêt-Source.

What also emerges from discussions with our counselling team in the field, who support abused women on a daily basis, is that they see with their own eyes that the support offered has positive impacts in the lives of women, just like the adapted and personalized services which lead to better social inclusion.

Our services

Our continuum of services is composed of 1st stage collective housing, 2nd stage apartments dedicated to abused young women aged 18 to 30,  post-shelter services for former residants, as well as an external counselling for all women in the community. Our professional team provides individualized support for each young woman, as well as a 24-hour presence for residents. 

The needs are there, as evidenced by the figures of the support we offer:


All year long we benefit from the support and investment of our board of directors. We thank them again for their precious help.
