For children and their families

Butterfly House will be all about offering a warm and safe space for children and their families. A space where their needs come first. A space to feel at home away from home. Every day, activities will be organized to support, stimulate and bring joy to the children and their families. Our service offering will include play therapy, arts, yoga, zootherapy, and massage therapy.

Nestled on a 4-acre lot on the Gatineau River, Butterfly House will provide a total of 8 bedrooms including 6 individual rooms for children and 2 family suites, as well as a recreation and motricity room, a multi-sensory room, healing rooms, an outside play area, a memorial site, an illuminated trail, and much more.

Children and their families will be the heart of Butterfly House. All care and services will revolve around their needs, accompanying them individually and collectively on their unique life journey.
