Lambda House Shelter

Lambda House aims to establish the first emergency shelter by and for the LGBTQ+ population in Canada. This initiative is possible thanks to the availability of suitable premises in the Center South district of Montreal, historically on the edge of the Village. The space has about thirty closed furnished rooms that will allow us to house our population in a degree of privacy necessary for the safety, well-being and growth of the trans and non-binary people who will be served. Maison Lambda is part of a trans-affirmative practice with a view of reducing risks. We anticipate that the accommodation resource will be open 24/7 and will offer 3 meals/day to shelter users. Creative activities will also be implemented to break the isolation experienced by this population in order to improve the formation of bonds of trust between users and the shelter intervention team.
