HISTORY

Montfort Renaissance, a non-profit community organization, was founded in July 2002. Its name reflects both organizations from which its creation originated: Montfort Hospital and Horizons Renaissance.

In 2012, to better meet the mental health, substance abuse and housing needs of Francophones residing in Eastern Ontario, Montfort Renaissance and Horizons Renaissance (founded in 1984) merged to improve the continuum of health services within their area of interest. Proud of its past, the new board decided to keep the name Montfort Renaissance.

Today, Montfort Renaissance has more than 120 employees and offers a dozen of programs, altogether serving more than 5,000 clients. Among others, Montfort Renaissance helps more than 300 people with housing either in the community or in its own housing units, at la Maison Gilles-Chagnon, at Terrasses Montfort Renaissance or at Résidence Montfort Renaissance. The organization also offers withdrawal management services to several thousands of clients per year (for example 1,200 individuals through the Residential Withdrawal Management program, more than 600 people through the community withdrawal program and the day program, close to 3,000 individuals through Service Access to Recovery) as well as rehabilitation and clinical services in mental health to more than 450 people each year.
