MISSION & OBJECTIVES
Established in 1995, Projet Communautaire de Pierrefonds (PCP) is a community organization driven by progressive ideas, bold actions, and a strong foundation of support. We strive to be deeply sensitive to, and respectful of, the needs and aspirations of families and their children. We value the diversity of individuals from all ethnic communities, and are committed to providing an environment of inclusivity and equality.
Our specific objectives are to:
Offer a bridge of assistance and relief to vulnerable individuals and families;
Ease and assist recent-immigrant families with the transition to life in Montréal, Québec;
Help promote positive mental health and self-esteem;
Prepare children and students for greater academic and socially-based success;
Encourage greater awareness, understanding and appreciation of, and among various community groups; and
Inspire and nurture the spirit of our members to achieve greater self-confidence and independence.
PCP always tries to adhere to its organizational values when it performs at its natural best. We actively promote these values through our actions, attitude, and communications with our clientele, and with one another. They comprise:
We appreciate the rich diversity of people from all ethnic communities;
We welcome individuals of all backgrounds, and seek to build bridges of trust, openness and acceptance;
We respect and support the needs and aspirations of children, students and vulnerable families across the West Island;
We acknowledge the right of an individual to be valued, respected, and ethically treated with dignity; and
We are committed to be fully communicative, transparent and accountable to our clientele, donors, partners, volunteers, supporters, and of course, to one another.
