Mission: Le Parenfant is a community organization that advocates for the well-being of children by offering services such as supervised visits, supervised custody exchanges, and psychosocial support. Since its establishment in 1995, Le Parenfant has always aimed to promote, maintain, or enhance the parent-child bond in a healthy, safe, and non-conflictual environment. The supervised visit service allows the non-custodial parent to spend quality time with their child under the supervision of a qualified intervenor. Custody exchanges are available to parents with shared custody who, due to conflicts or disagreements, use Le Parenfant to transition the child from one environment to another. The child is therefore not placed in the midst of adult conflicts.


  • Supervision of access rights
  • Psychosocial support
  • Supervision of parent-child meetings

Territories served: MRC of Brome-Missisquoi and MRC of Haute-Yamaska.
