The Kangaroo House offers listening and referral services and help through its various emergency funds while directing parents to organizations likely to help them in the longer term. Our social goal is the improvement of family health and well-being.

Our various emergency funds allow us to meet the needs of families. Anyone with one or more dependent children aged 0 to 12 can benefit from our services 24/7.

Our families go through various family issues throughout the year, and our emergency funds allow them to resolve or alleviate these issues and get back on the road after they’ve weathered life’s great storms.

In the long term, we want to open a house in each of the 17 administrative regions of Quebec. In the meantime, we are announcing that The Kangaroo House will become mobile during the year 2024/2025 to promote our services.
