CFHI has deep roots in the Rivière-des-Prairies community. It works with families in the neighborhood and surrounding area, from an intercultural perspective.
Our activities are particularly aimed at supporting families by working with them to reduce risk factors, for their well-being. This objective is achieved by supporting the improvement of their conditions through employability assistance, food security, leisure and socialization activities, educational activities and psychosocial support.
Some of our members come from more or less recent immigrant backgrounds, and we support them in their gradual integration into the host society.
