The Van

The Van represents an important first step in the long process of building trust with the youth and is often their first point of contact with Dans la rue.

The Van is an RV that offers a safe, warm break from the street for homeless and at-risk youth. The Roulotte provides the following services:
• Support, guidance and someone to listen
• Meals and bags of non-perishable food
• Donations of warm clothing

In addition to providing a brief escape from life on the streets, the Van’s volunteers also refer youth to appropriate resources.

Where does the Van stop?

The Van makes four stops at major intersections of Mont-Royal, Saint-Denis, René-Lévesque and Pie-IX streets, covering most of downtown Montreal. For the full schedule and exact locations of the Van stops, please call us.
