Our Team

Audrey Habib

Audrey Habib

Executive Director

I have been a director of community organizations for several years and have acquired a solid knowledge of the community and of the issues related to families in a context of vulnerability. I have a bachelor’s degree in communication and a master’s degree in society, public policy and health from UdeM. I would like to improve my management skills by pursuing a master’s degree in organizational development at HEC Montréal. I am a smiling and dynamic person who likes to take on challenges and work in a collaborative environment with my team. My positivism and my objectivity lead me to analyze situations from all angles.

Virginie Bonneau

Directrice générale par intérim

I am more than happy to “keep the seat warm” until Audrey’s return and to contribute to the proper management of the organization. What I like about my responsibilities: discovering the many talents of the team members, working closely with early childhood partners, and being the privileged witness of magical moments between parents and their children.

I have a certificate in law (UQÀM), a bachelor’s degree in social work and I am currently doing a master’s degree in management. I have worked as a social worker in the network and in the community and I have also had several contracts as a psychosocial worker and facilitator. Thanks to my open-mindedness, my dynamism and my passion for intervention, I aspire to support the team so that it can continue to accompany families so well. I am passionate about the arts, culture… and my two young children!

Intervenor

I have been working at Famijeunes for five years now and I have been accompanying families for over 14 years. I have had the chance to work in different intervention environments that have allowed me to acquire a great deal of experience as an intervener. Accompanying families in their life journey remains a privilege and a vocation for me and I believe in the strengths of each individual and in the power of collective support.

Marc Howard

Marc Howard

Intervener

Intervener for 30 years and greatly inspired by street work which is based on non-judgmental accompaniment, respect for the rhythm and beliefs and orientations of the human beings accompanied. As a father for 23 years, I am also marked by this fatherhood, because it taught me the true meaning of self-giving and unconditional love, but also that this fatherhood sometimes comes with its share of difficulties.

Educator

I have always been passionate about early childhood and it is a real pleasure for me to work with children for 10 years now. I have been working in the community for almost 4 years now and I take the well-being of children and their families to heart. Listening to families and giving them the necessary tools to make decisions is a priority for me.

Intervenor

I have been in the intervention field for almost 20 years. Originally from France, I came to Quebec to enrich my practice. Seven years later, I am still here. My professional background is varied, I have worked with people living with an intellectual disability and mental health problems. For the past two years, I have been working with families at Famijeunes. What I particularly like about my work is the human relationships and learning from each other’s differences.

Mélanie Forest

Mélanie Forest

Receptionist, administrative assistant and communications manager

I am a mother of three beautiful girls and I have been working at Famijeunes for a short time. I am already in awe because I have always wanted to work closely with families and here I am fulfilled.
As a new graduate in secretarial studies, I could not find a better job. It is therefore with pleasure that I will welcome you every day, with a smile on my face and ready to listen to you. Famijeunes is first and foremost a warm and welcoming place and I am committed to keeping it that way.

As a Graduate in accounting, and cumulating more than 20 years of experience in the field of finance, numbers are my universe! Today, what makes me a proud professional is my involvement in the community. Dynamic and committed, I never take half measures. I’m passionate about good music and I like to make small dishes that are intended for the apples of my eye, my two children.

Andréanne Bernatchez

Andréanne Bernatchez

Intervenante

The human being fascinates me. Having had a child at a young age and having faced a number of issues, I was sensitized quite early on to many realities. These experiences that I lived pushed me to an education that would deepen my knowledge of the human in all its complexity and uniqueness. For me, accompaniment is being attentive, empathetic. It is to welcome each person for who they are, without discrimination or judgment. It is to bring out what differentiates us from each other, but above all what connects us to each other.
