I Run With Refugees
Refugee claimants (unsponsored refugees) arrive in Canada with little to no support. I run to support Adam House in their mission to provide a warm welcome and caring community for refugees.
Where would you go if you had nothing and you knew no one?
Having nothing and knowing no one is often just the beginning of the barriers new refugees face. Often times there is a language barrier. Refugee claimants are dealing with numerous issues-trauma that was experienced in their home country and on their journey to Canada, and often living with the anguish of leaving family behind.
Adam House provides refugee claimants with clean and safe living accommodations. The staff at Adam House provide assistance and advice with immigration procedures, primarily to residents and former residents. They provide referrals to legal services, medical assistance, and community resources. However, Adam House is much more than shelter or the services they provide. Adam House is home. A place where residents find friendship and support-from staff and each other.
Every dollar raised enables Adam House to continue welcoming refugees.
