About us

Mirépi, shelter house.

In 1989-1990, MIchèle Plamondon, jeanne Lirette and PIerrette Martel conceived the idea of a shelter during a sociology course. Although it is initially just a project, Réjeanne and Pierrette, driven by a passion to help, work tirelessly to bring it to fruition. Services began in 1990 and in September 1991, the first house opened its doors. Since then, the Mirépi shelter, now in its third home, continues to help women and children victims of violence, guided by its mission and fundamental values.
