“We are very happy to be able to make our own special contribution to enhancing the quality of life for families in need by allowing them to enjoy a warmer and more inviting living space,” said Mobilia president Johannes Kau. “Furniture is such an important part of our daily lives. It creates a comfortable environment and fosters togetherness” he added.



Carrefour Familial Hochelaga

A multi-functional living space that includes a meeting room and sewing area

The Carrefour Familial Hochelaga has been providing families from the Hochelaga-Maisonneuve district with a sense of belonging since 1976. Their services include a family centre, a short-term shelter for fathers with young children and a back-to-school program for parents. Among the areas that will be revamped is a huge multi-functional living space in the basement that includes a meeting room and sewing area. The living room and play area for fathers and children at the Maison Oxygène Montréal, one of the main resources of the Carrefour Familial Hochelaga, will also get a makeover thanks to a paint job and the smart redesign of the space by the Mobilia team.

Helping With Furniture is a charitable organization that distributes furniture and household goods to families who are beginning a new life in Ottawa, especially refugees and new immigrants as well as those leaving situations of abuse and those struggling with mental illness or at risk of homelessness. “We are so happy to be working with Mobilia on this project that will help a family build a new life,” said Shazia Shah. “With the help of the Foundation we will be able to create a really inspirational home from scratch, which is so fundamental to making a new start in life.”

Red Door Family Shelter

Providing furniture for those who need it the most

The mission of the Red Door Family Shelter is to end homelessness for each family that comes through their doors by providing a safe, temporary refuge and critical services to support them in healing, rebuilding their lives and integrating back into a community. “We are very happy to have the support of the Mobilia team for our Moving Program,” said Executive Director Carol Latchford. “By providing furniture to families, Mobilia is giving them practical tools to rebuild their lives after homelessness.
