We have several groups of people coming together in our community to help answer the urgent call to action many of us are feeling.
With our support, and the support of the New Canadian’s Centre these groups are doing several things:
- Fundraising to support the refugee family for their first year in Canada (about $27,000 for a family of four for one year)
- Building a settlement plan to support the family once they arrive in Canada
- Jointly fill out the paperwork (led by Casa Maria Refugee Home, to start the refugee family approval process
- Bringing together a team of volunteers to help the refugee family with their transition once they arrive in Canada
