I Run With Refugees

My family and I are walking 5k with Adam House on October 17 and raising funds in support of refugees. This is my 5th walk and the 4th year that we are walking as a family. Adam House has been the first home in Canada for 2500 refugee claimants since 2002. But they couldn't do it without the financial partnership of donors like you! Thank you for your generous gift, Lucy, Tafadzwa, Jayden (8) and Maleeya (6)

Description

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.
