About Petits Frères des Pauvres:
Founded in 1946, Petits Frères des Pauvres (Petits Frères) acts as an extended family for elderly people in Quebec at risk of social isolation. Petits Frères’ head office is in Montreal and it has 15 chapters set up across the province in Quebec City, Saguenay, Lac-Mégantic, Trois-Rivières, Rimouski, Thetford Mines, Laval, Longueuil, Lévis, Terrebonne, Montreal-Centre (Montreal) Pointe-de-l‘Île (Montreal East), Saint-Eustache and West Island (Montreal West). Petits Frères also has two vacation lodges: Juliette Huot Lodge in Oka and Lac Saint-Joseph Lodge.
Local Friends of the Elderly programs made up 88% of Petits Frères’ program costs in F2015. Local Friends of the Elderly includes subprograms such as long-term pairing, home visits, quality of life services, senior wishes, celebrations and outings, end-of-life commitment services and vacation getaways. Petits Frères calls the isolated seniors that it serves “Elder Friends.” The charity currently has more than 1,200 Elder Friends and reports that the number of seniors served increased by close to 25% in F2015. The charity’s flagship program within Local Friends of The Elderly is its pairing service, where Elder Friends get to spend one-on-one time with a volunteer. Through its home visits service, Petits Frères made 14,000 visits to hospitals, care facilities and homes in F2015. Vacation getaway services, available at the Juliette Huot Lodge and Lac Saint-Joseph lodge, collectively hosted 654 Elder Friends in F2015. Petits Frères reports 1,064 seniors are no longer socially isolated due to F2015 Local Friends of the Elderly programming.
