Welcome to Saint Columba House
Saint Columba House is a community centre in the neighbourhood of Point Saint Charles in Montreal and will be celebrating its 100th anniversary in 2017. As a community ministry of The United Church of Canada, Saint Columba House is not merely providing programs for Pointe Saint Charles`population. Our approach is to empower and involve citizens in groups and actions which directly involve their lives.
There is a lot to do at Saint Columba House. Our daily lunch program provides food security by community members for community members, and is also a great way to drop by and see the House, Monday to Friday from 11:30 am to 12:30 pm ($2). Our Alternate School is a preschool, we provide after-school activities for all ages, have a bicycle shop, a day camp in summer, and so much more.
Point Saint Charles is a low-income neighbourhood in Montreal’s Southwest, with a multicultural population and a strong and rich history of community organizing, often with Saint Columba House in the centre, as was the case with the establishment of community-led health services or the resistance against the Montreal Casino.
The neighbourhood is changing through gentrification, and Saint Columba House strives to help our community with housing, economic and environmental issues, always with the focus on community participation and empowerment.
Saint Columba House is a registered charity with Charities Canada (www.cra.gc.ca).
