Reception House WR- Creating warm welcome
Reception House WR
Grand River Unitarian
Reception House provides assistance to newly arrived refugees in the Waterloo Region. We have welcomed and supported thousands of refugees since 1987.
We focus on ensuring that newcomers settling in Waterloo Region are successful by providing temporary accommodations, orientation to life in Canada and access to health care. As our newest neighbours begin to settle and integrate into our community, we assist with providing support to secure meaningful jobs and access to mental health care so that healing from loss and trauma can begin.
More than ever before, we need your support. Waterloo Region and our communities are strongest when we all provide our newest neighbours with a warm welcome.
Through capacity building, case management and referrals, we strive to provide all refugees in Waterloo Region a successful settlement experience. With support from people like you, we know we can provide a warm welcome to our newest neighours! Ride with us this fall and help create a welcoming community where newcomers are welcome.
