Degage’s kitchen operates similarly to a low-cost restaurant. A small fee is also attached to several of the services offered at Dégagé such as laundry and locker rental. Additionally, we sell necessities such as socks and t-shirts. This reflects the ministry’s commitment to fostering dignity and respect. We believe that people feel dignity when they are taking care of their own needs and allowed to make personal decisions.
For those who have limited or no income, we offer 60 opportunities a day to earn “Degage Dollars” which may be used to purchase food and necessities or participate in our services that have a fee attached (To learn more about this program, click here). Charging for services promotes habits of self-sufficiency and affirms an individual’s ability to care for him or herself.
