Meegwetch House

587 Elgin Avenue in Winnipeg was once a special place for the Rossbrook House community.

Meegwetch House opened in 1982 and was a home for girls who needed a safe place to live. Sister Carol Peloquin took over running it in January of 1983 and did so for nine years until it closed


At the age of 13, Rachel became a resident of Meegwetch House. Sister Carol introduced her to Rossbrook House where she says she ‘finally found a sense of belonging’. Today, Rachel is an Educational Assistant. Sister Carol passed away in 2021. She remained in contact with many of the young women she mentored and cared for at Meegwetch House





Meegwetch House made a difference in the lives of children and youth, just like Rossbrook House, and we couldn’t be happier about that!
