About Dans la Rue


Le Bon Dieu dans la rue, founded by Father Emmett Johns ("Pops") in 1988, provides assistance to homeless youth and youth at risk. With dedication, empathy and respect, and with the support of the community, we care for their immediate needs, and help them acquire the skills and resources needed to lead more autonomous and rewarding lives.


“Thanks to Le Bon Dieu dans la rue and its outreach workers, kids have somewhere to go to eat, clean up, wash their clothes, see a nurse, play music, paint, draw… and, when they’re ready, go back to school and build a new life. For all of this, I thank Pops and the Day Centre and, of course, all of the workers there.”


It is estimated that there are between 10,000 and 15,000 homeless people in Montreal.
