On September 25th 1970, l’Agence sociale spécialisée de Hull was officially launched as well as being incorporated as a non profit organization. It's status was modified twice.
Our organization was founded in 1970 by a group of people, some of them former offenders, who wanted to take their lives in their own hands. Other founders were volunteers who simply wanted to help offenders recently released from prison by offering them shelter, food and employment.
Our organization collaborated with the implementation of this law reform and was therefore granted the responsibility of the community follow-up of 384 offenders. The services offered by our agency complement the goals and objectives of Québec’s Correctional Services and the needs of offenders.
On April 28th, 2006, the Québec’s Minister of Public Safety, Mr. Jacques P. Dupuis, announced the progressive implementation of Québec’s Conditional Release Law.
Our caseworkers who studied in the fields of Criminology, Sociology, Social Work, Psychology or other related fields, have received and continue to receive appropriate training in our mission. For example, they have all been trained in crisis management. The combination of the educational expertise and continued in house training, allows the CRC staff to offer our clients counseling services that are geared to the offender's needs. The Executive Director and/or the Assistant Director oversee the supervision of all staff.
