I want to live in the home. How can I register?

The Véro & Louis Foundation works closely with the CISSS de la Montérégie-Ouest (CISSSMO) to offer high-quality services to Montérégie residents. To request access to services, including a housing request for the Véro & Louis Home, please do so with your region’s relevant services (formerly CLSC). The request will be directed to and analyzed by the specialized services concerned. Individuals already in contact with specialized services must consult their system navigator from CISSSMO. The selection criteria for the Véro & Louis Home are established jointly by CISSSMO and the Véro & Louis Foundation.

How many residents will live in the first home?

The Véro & Louis Home in Varennes will accommodate up to 20 residents.

Who will the clients be?

Autistic men and women, 21 years old and up, who require daily and lifelong support.

How did you design a building tailored to the needs of adults living with an ASD?

Before designing the first Home, Université de Montréal produced a study report and proposed a project supported by exemplary precedents around the world. The architects then drew up the plans of the first Home while taking into account the unique sensory and social needs of the residents, including light, temperature, acoustics and materials. The design provides spaces that allow residents to be together or alone, as needed. The Maison’s shape and configuration facilitate moving through the space while avoiding dead ends and surprises.
