Our purpose at L’Abri en Ville is to provide stable homes and authentic community for adults diagnosed with a major mental illness. L’Abri rents three-bedroom apartments and furnishes them attractively. Through a series of referrals and interviews, the coordinators choose three residents for each apartment. Potential residents can apply to L’Abri en Ville themselves but are more often referred by mental health professionals, and sometimes families.   http://www.labrienville.org/our-mission/   http://www.labrienville.org/1466-2/about-beginnings/   http://www.labrienville.org/governance/
