Following the International Year of the Family in 1994, the CLSC Presqu’Île Foundation was created in 1995. The creation of the Foundation was motivated by the desire to support activities in the community, as an extension of the CLSC’s interventions to support children, youth and families in particular.
In 2007, the CLSC Presqu’Île Foundation became the Children’s Foundation of Vaudreuil Soulanges (Fondation des enfants de Vaudreuil Soulanges.).
Dr. Monique Rozon-Rivest created the foundation in 1995 and was its president until February 2020, when she passed away. Élaine Chagnon is now the President of the Foundation, having joined the Board of Directors in 2003.
Since 1995, the Foundation has participated in several programs to respond to requests made by families and community organizations. Whether it is a request from school or community workers, the Foundation has always listened and acted quickly for these vulnerable children and families. Thank you to our major donors and to the population of Vaudreuil-Soulanges who have believed in our mission to help and support these children and who support us in the continuation of our actions.
