What moves you? Join us on Saturday, Oct1, 2022 for the Ride for Refuge, a family-friendly bike + walk fundraiser. The is a day when you can declare their solidarity with millions of people in Canada and around the world who are displaced, exploited, persecuted, or abused.


We ride or walk together to call attention to refugee claimants, whose lives have been turned upside down as they have been displaced from their country, community, family and all they have known.

About Journey Home Community

Our Mission

Inspired by God’s love, we are creating caring communities

that offer refugee claimants housing, settlement support,

and opportunities for connection.


Our Vision

We envision a society where all refugees experience

hope and belonging as they engage in meaningful participation

in their community and flourish in all aspects of life. Journey Home Community exists to welcome newly arriving refugee claimant families into the Metro Vancouver area.


Will you support our vision and draw alongside refugee families?


Families arrive after fleeing persecution, seeking a new home in a safe place. After settling they are ready to utilize their multiple skills and abilities to make Canada an even better place!


Join us in making the difference for these courageous families. RIDE or WALK with us on October 1st.


On Oct 1st, Ride for Refuge 2022 will be immediately followed by a Celebration Event. All Riders, Participants, Donors, and Sponsors will be invited, even if your event is a different day. Join us at 4:30 PM


For more information contact Doug Peat at 778-242-1227 or email doug@journeyhomecommunity.ca

Event Day Details

Save the date - RIDE Day is October 1, 2022!

The Ride for Refuge is a day when Canadians declare their solidarity with millions of people in Canada and around the world who are displaced, exploited, persecuted, or abused.


We ride or walk together to call attention to those whose lives have been turned upside down as they have been displaced from their country, community, family and all they have known.


We stand with refugee claimants, welcoming them, then housing and supporting them during their first critical months.
