La Maison Bleue’s lawyers do not represent families but help them find a lawyer by prioritizing the use of legal aid. A network of private partner lawyers who are sensitive to the realities of families is also mobilized and maintained, enabling a referral adapted to each situation.

Families have access to clear and simplified legal information resources.

Group workshops are regularly held to raise awareness among families about various types of rights that may affect them (immigration, housing, family, criminal, administrative, etc.). These workshops are led by lawyers in collaboration with the social worker, midwifes, special education/psychoeducator, or nurse.
