C’est avec beaucoup de tristesse que Dans la rue annonce le décès de son fondateur, le père Emmett Johns, mieux connu sous le nom de « Pops ». Pops est décédé le 13 janvier 2018, à l’âge de 89 ans. C’est à 60 ans et après 40 années passées comme curé dans différentes paroisses que le Père Johns a décidé, en 1988, de tendre la main aux jeunes sans-abri de Montréal pour leur apporter aide, écoute et réconfort. La mission de Dans la rue demeure profondément ancrée dans les valeurs de dévouement, empathie et respect, si chères à Pops. Son héritage, celui d'un accueil inconditionnel des jeunes en difficulté, continuera de nous inspirer à Dans la rue pour poursuivre son oeuvre essentielle. « Quand je pense à mes premières soirées sur la roulotte, je me dis que jamais je n'aurais pu imaginer que Dans la rue devienne l'organisation d'importance qu'elle est aujourd'hui... On a eu un impact positif sur la vie de dizaines de milliers de jeunes - et on continue d'en aider plus encore, jour après jour. » - Père Emmett Johns, "Pops" Les détails quant aux cérémonies de commémoration seront communiqués ultérieurement. - Dans la rue is deeply saddened to announce the passing of the organization’s founder, Father Emmett Johns, fondly known as “Pops,” on January 13th, 2018. He was ­­89. In 1988, at the age of 60 and after decades serving as a parish priest, Father Johns felt called to reach out to Montreal’s homeless youth. He took to the streets in a used motorhome, offering warm food and a sympathetic ear to hundreds of street youth. Dans la rue’s mission remains strongly rooted in Pops’ philosophy of dedication, empathy, and respect. His enduring legacy is one of acceptance without judgement and this legacy will continue to inspire and to guide the staff and volunteers at Dans la rue as they carry on his important work. "When I think back to the first nights I spent on the Van, never could I have imagined that Dans la rue would be what it is today… We have had an impact on tens of thousands of young lives - and we continue to reach out to more and more every day." - Father Emmett Johns, "Pops" The date of services in celebration of Father Johns' life will be communicated shortly.
