Welcome to the online home of Maison Belfield - Jeremy Bettan Center!
Maison Belfield is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to reach out to current and ex-inmates and to train, rehabilitate and reintegrate them into their community so that they can become productive members of society. It provides ex-inmates and individuals who are battling different addictions and challenges, with a unique opportunity to live in a supervised group home in a residential setting. Maison Belfield strives to prepare its participants for reintegration into society by teaching them how to cope with the responsibilities and challenges of a free and open society. It guides its clients in building and managing a constructive lifestyle.
Maison Belfield is nonsectarian and open to all inmates and ex inmates who correspond to our mission and who will abide and respect our integration and rehabilitation framework and values.
