An urgent situation
This 1st of December 2017, Maison Plein Cœur launches a major campaign of crowdfunding Maison Plein Coeur: Keep the beat to allow us to continue to keep pace with our programs and services. Maison Plein Cœur solicits your involvement in this campaign to help us fulfill our mission of direct assistance to people living with HIV-AIDS, who are still among the most vulnerable in our society. This campaign is critical for us.
Maison Plein Cœur faces a daunting challenge in the coming year with the loss of two reliable sources of recurring funding. We are losing $ 12,000 from the recently closed Farha Foundation, which has been supporting our Car Accompaniment Program for several years. More importantly, we are losing $ 96,000 from the Public Health Agency of Canada – our second largest funder, which we have been counting on since 1995 – due to an unexpected shift in priorities.
The loss of these two major sources of funding equals a total of $ 108,000 annually, representing 20% of our overall budget.
This is jeopardizing our ability to ‘keep up the pace’, to continue to deliver many of our essential and unique programs and services for people living with HIV / AIDS (PLWHA) in Montreal, which we have been doing for over 25 years .
This reduction of $ 100,000 in annual funding represents:
- 85 car accompaniments to medical appointments;
- 536 fewer people at our Day Center;
- 89 fewer people at our community dinners;
- 60 people met individually for psychosocial support in global health;
- 145 massages.
Nearly 1,000 essential interventions will be affected by this cut.

For any donation of $ 1,000 or more , you will be recognized as a Full House Allied on our website, on our social media, in our annual report, on the premises of the organization and at our events.
Each donation of $ 1,000 will ensure that 10 interventions identified above will be offered during the year.
Your help today is crucial to the pursuit of our mission. Without your support as well as that of the general public, MPC will be forced to reduce its offer of programs and services, thus negatively affecting the health of PLHIV.
Let’s dance, celebrate life and continue together to support the health and well-being of people living with HIV in Montreal!
The large family of Maison Plein Cœur users, volunteers and employees thanks you for your involvement and support!
