The Fondation Jean Lapointe was founded in 1982. During a time when Maison Jean Lapointe struggled with promotion and funding, the Foundation was established to help finance the treatment center and increase its influence throughout the province.
As the Foundation began to realize the importance of investing in prevention to prevent addiction-related problems from affecting future generations, a turning point was reached.
The Fondation Jean Lapointe decided in 2008 to devote its efforts and a substantial portion of its funds to preventing risks associated with the use of alcohol, cannabis, and other drugs among students.
For over 35 years, the Jean Lapointe Foundation has supported the Jean Lapointe Telethon, Jean Lapointe Centers for Teens, 28 Days Sober Challenge, and countless other projects and activities.
