Founded in 2011, The Kangaroo House is the first emergency and front-line center in Quebec that offers emergency assistance services to families and their children 24/7.
Located on the island of Montreal, our organization is now specialized in helping families experiencing a family emergency such as divorce or separation, exhaustion, serious illness, loss of a loved one, a call out of work, job loss, etc. It is the first non-profit organization of its kind in Quebec and Canada.
Our objective is to prevent children from experiencing these stressful situations and to support families facing unexpected challenges. Our warm approach is based on human values and is oriented towards community mutual aid.
