"We rise by lifting others"
- Robert Ingersoll
Donations give Welfare Avenue the potential to efficiently help our community and give us more flexibility in what we can offer our unhoused neighbours.
Welfare Avenue was founded in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, which caused a severe increase in the number of homeless people in Montreal, and across the world. We decided to intervene and give a helping hand. Thanks to our volunteers we quickly scaled our helping capabilities. Today, we help hundreds of our unhoused neighbours every week.
We are a student-run organization, meaning we depend heavily on donations to keep running. 100% of donations are used to provide the homeless community with food, sanitary items, clothes, gift cars and much more.
