About the Welcome Collective
WHAT WE DO
We provide better access to a new start by reducing the stress, isolation, and other difficulties faced by newcomers. We achieve this by connecting newly arrived families with locals and by helping them gather basic furniture and other essential items for their new homes.
WHO WE HELP
Our program focuses on helping vulnerable refugee claimants. We support single parents, pregnant women, mothers with newborns, large families with young children, people with physical and mental challenges, and the elderly.
HOW WE HELP
We provide essential material goods such as furniture, winter clothing, kitchen items, and other essential household items that are generously donated to us.
Our Welcome Groups provide practical information (such as how to manage with winter) and guidance about social services, and organize community events so that they have what they need to settle into their new homes and neighbourhoods.
