Our Story

At the end of the 1970s, Sr. Rita Barrieau realized that there were very few accessible housing resources for people in need in the Greater Moncton area.

In 1994, a Board of Directors was formed and a senior management position was created to replace Sister Barrieau who wished to withdraw from the administrative component of Maison Nazareth inc.
