The Old Brewery Mission (OBM) is a non-profit organization that has been working with Montreal’s homeless men and women since 1889. Support and assistance are offered according to two principles: to respond to the basic needs of homeless people and to find practical, sustainable solutions to the problem of homelessness. OMB’s goal is to offer clients the opportunity to see the Mission as a starting point rather than a final destination.
Canadian Homelessness Research Network (CHRN) has developed a framework to identify and share promising practices in order to support communities in the development of effective programmatic solutions to homelessness in Canada. This case study is part of the promising practice framework "What Works and for Whom?". You can access the framework and the other case studies here.
