I Run With Refugees

I am running for the refugee claimants that Adam House supports. These newcomers to Canada demonstrate such hope and resilience in very difficult life circumstances. 

Adam House is able to help its clients establish themselves and begin their new life in Canada only because of the generosity of the community. Please consider giving!

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.
