Street work and news
SOME FACTS AND FIGURES...

Our MISSION is to help, through street work, young people aged 12 to 25 of all origins who are living difficult situations.

2007, a pivotal year
First of all, this was the year of foundation of the ROCQTR, "Regroupement des Organismes Communautaires Québécois pour le Travail de Rue" (Association of Québec Street Work Community Organizations). PACT de rue was one of the main instigators of this association. Thanks to this new partnership, 22 organizations specialized in street work now have access to a network where they can discuss problems related to their geographical and socio-political realities (urban, semi-urban or rural contexts), as well as their corporate situations (financing, reporting activities, relations with networks, management, training tools). 2007 is also an important year because we then became co-owner, with four other organisms, of a newly established cooperative called "LA COOP JARRY". This new partnership also improves our scope of action in the community.
