Giving hope to our young people! 

Staying in school and getting involved

The main mission of the OMHM Foundation is to encourage young people from low-rent housing to stay in school and to invest themselves in Montreal and Quebec society. The Foundation’s actions come under three themes:

Persévérance scolaire

Supporting young people to stay in school

Créativité

Encouraging initiative and creativity

Estime de soi

Increasing a feeling of pride and self-worth

The Foundation bases its actions on a strategy of individual and collective support to achieve its objectives, specifically by: 

  • offering financial support to not-for-profit organizations working with young people in low-rent housing and sharing the Foundation’s objectives;
  • awarding individual study grants (academic merit, supporting effort, return to school) within the Persévéra program through a partnership with Éducaide;
  • awarding prizes and access to sports and artistic training;
  • funding participation in summer camps;
  • funding for the acquisition of school materials;
  • supporting intercultural exchange projects;
  • rewarding community or voluntary commitment of the OMHM's young residents.
