L’Abri en Ville provides support to residents in the way of weekly visits from the coordinators, along with accompaniment to medical appointments if warranted. House meetings and individual meetings, weekly and as needed, help to provide stability for the person living with a mental illness. Sixty plus volunteers, many who have been with L’Abri since its inception 27 years ago, continue to provide the social connection and activities such as family or friends might do. Thanks to all of you for supporting L’Abri en Ville in its mission to help those living with a major mental illness. Your generosity is very much appreciated.
