“It doesn't matter how big our house is; it mattered that there was love in her. "

Peter Buffett


The Centre de Ressources Familiales du Haut St-Laurent was founded in 1985 by women from the community and was called at the time “Association Ressources Maternité (ARM)”. Seeing to the well-being of pregnant women who face high-risk pregnancies through, among other things, the OLO service, was its main mission. ARM was located at 182 Châteauguay street in Huntingdon.


Over time, the organization has developed according to the needs and initiative of its members, leading to the establishment of early parent-child stimulation workshops for 0 to 3 year olds in 1993 with a drop-in daycare service, then adding cooking workshops for pregnant women and parents of young children in 1999. At the same time, the early stimulation workshops were enhanced by members wanting to develop and deploy parent-child activity groups for 3 to 4 year olds. In 2000, the organization changed its charter to become the 'Centre de Ressources Familiales du Haut Saint-Laurent', a name that better reflects the mission and objectives as well as the territory served by the organization.
