Adapted housing


In Quebec, there is a desperate lack of resources to meet the needs of victims of brain injuries. Because of this lack of resources, victims in their thirties are sometimes transferred to long-term care facilities to receive around-the-clock support. But these aren’t settings suited to the realities of victims of brain injuries, because they are still able to engage in certain activities. They deserve a home that reflects their needs.

The donations received by the Foundation to date have made a major contribution to expanding the Martin-Matte Home Network across Quebec. Seven adapted housing resources have opened their doors in Laval, Sherbrooke, Blainville, Saint-Prosper in Beauce, Coaticook, Quebec City and Trois-Rivières. In June 2020, a new residence for people with a head injury or physical disability will become part of the network, in Trois-Pistoles, for a grand total of eight homes.

Donald St-Pierre - Résident

“The apartment is gorgeous, well divided and functional... no more thresholds for going outside or taking a shower. Accessibility makes life easier for people with disabilities, and I feel safe here. If anything happens, I just ring and someone is there to help. The staff is courteous and sensitive.”
Donald St-Pierre, resident of the Maison Martin-Matte, Pavillon Patrice-Villeneuve


Mauricie - Centre-du-Québec Region

Maison Martin-Matte Trois-Rivières

The seventh Maison Martin-Matte, led by Le Groupe Accès aux Logis in collaboration with the Société d'habitation du Québec, includes 10 apartments adapted to the needs of people with head injuries. The building is located on CIUSSS de la Mauricie-et-du-Centre-du-Québec land, and is the first residence of the Martin-Matte Home Network to offer a peaceful living environment only to people living with a head injury. The first tenants moved into their new home in July 2019.
