In the usual order, Mr. Christophe Folla, President of groupe sutton – quebec, Ms. Julie Gaucher, Vice-president and chief of operations of groupe sutton – quebec and Ms. Cécile Arbaud, Executive Director of Dans la rue.
« We know that having a roof and a home are decisive elements for fostering growth and development in young people. During our visit to the Chez Pops Day Centre with people from Dans la Rue we were touched and motivated by this space where young people can find shelter, support, food, or advice from one of the counsellors who care about their well-being. I firmly believe that our contribution as a Group, franchisees and brokers can make a real difference in the lives of young people, » said Ms. Julie Gaucher, Vice-President and Chief of Operations at groupe sutton – quebec.
« We are very grateful to groupe sutton – quebec for supporting the cause of homeless youth, » said Ms. Cécile Arbaud, Executive Director of Dans la Rue, « the donations will do a great deal to help us support young people during their transition to an autonomous adult life. We are equally touched that the Group is talking about our cause and raising public awareness about the desperate needs of these young people. »
Please take some time to visit Dans la rue.
