Mission Bon Accueil

About the Welcome Hall Mission

The Welcome Hall Mission actively works at reducing the poverty, loneliness and despair which are unfortunately widespread in Montreal, even if not always visible to the naked eye. Hunger, homelessness, addiction, and social exclusion can affect families and people of all origins, from all social classes and faiths. Welcome Hall Mission supports and gives hope to the most disadvantaged through concrete actions and effective solutions to build a better life and reintegrate into society.

How we helped

Phil designed the Welcome Hall Mission (Mission Bon Accueil) website in 2012 and provided social media strategy and training for their staff to be able to maintain their online channels themselves. Our team is proud to have collaborated with one of Montreal’s oldest organizations tackling the cities most pressing concerns: to break the cycle of poverty and help the most disadvantaged find better opportunities.

Showcasing services, increase donations

When an organisation has been around as long as the Welcome Hall Mission and so well known for their core services, it can be difficult to educate the public on the rest of the work they do. Phil’s team worked on developing a navigation and structure that would allow the shelter to showcase their nine services, their seven ways of giving, and their 125 year history of serving the community.
