Le Groupe communautaire L’Itinéraire s’est donné pour mission d’accompagner des personnes marginalisées, exclues du marché traditionnel du travail, ayant connu l’itinérance, la dépendance, ou souffrant de problèmes de santé mentale. Au fil des ans, environ 2500 personnes ont amélioré leur qualité de vie par la rédaction et la vente du journal de rue. 

Géré par L’Itinéraire depuis 2015 en collaboration avec le milieu autochtone de Montréal et l'arrondissement Ville-Marie, le Café de la Maison ronde est un projet et un lieu bien unique dans le paysage montréalais. Situé au square Cabot, il s'agit du seul café autochtone de la métropole dont la mission sociale est d’offrir une opportunité de travail adaptée à des personnes autochtones qui sont éloignées du marché du travail, en situation ou à risque d’itinérance.
