A Roof for Women - Help us create a new home for Afrique au Féminin!

Afrique au Féminin is the only women’s centre in Parc-Extension, a vibrant and diverse, yet particularly vulnerable neighbourhood in Montreal. Parc-Ex is home to many newcomers who face barriers related to poverty, language, education, ethnicity and more. Our mission is to support immigrant women in improving their living conditions and facilitating their integration into Quebec.

The demand for our services has exploded over the past ten years. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the last two years have been particularly challenging.  Our centre operates in two locations, both of which are in disrepair and are too small to meet the needs of the community. Furthermore, this fall, we were forced to move one of our offices to a much smaller space, which means we have had to suspend some of our activities.

While challenging, this situation offered us an opportunity to increase, improve and design our new home to meet the needs of the community we serve. We are very pleased to have purchased a new building to house our activities, which will act as a safe space for the immigrant women of Parc-Extension. The space is larger, and with significant renovations, will be a model for community service, enabling us to better fulfill our mission.

To realize the potential of our new space, we are urgently in need of funds to proceed with improvements of the facility. Help us ensure the continuation of services to the most vulnerable by contributing to a new home for Afrique au Féminin.
