Our History

A temporary committee was formed in April 1986 to study the possibility of establishing a transition house in the Chaleur region. The instigator of this initiative was Roland Godin of the Nepisiguit Family Services.

Chaired by Shelley Robichaud, the temporary committee organized various meetings and activities. A total of 18 meetings were held before the founding meeting of June 11, 1987.

A transition house is a safe place for you and your children. You’ll be kept away from violence, and you’ll have access to advice and information on social services and legal options available.
Transition houses are open 24 hours a day, seven days a week. You can stay there for free with your children for about a month. The transition house staff will help you through the crisis.

Maison de Passage House Inc. serves the Chaleur region (Belledune to St. Sauveur, to Pokeshaw).
