About Feels Like Home Newcomers

Feels Like Home Newcomers is a community-based nonprofit, dedicated to serving, supporting, and empowering refugees and at-risk individuals due to their immigration status. As newcomers face many deeply rooted systemic issues such as limited resources, marginalization, and discrimination, we offer a variety of free programs and services to match the diversity of their needs.


Funds raised through Ride for Refuge will allow for vital financial flexibility and enable us to deliver prompt assistance to those seeking support. Through your participation in Ride for Refuge, you embody values of diversity and inclusion, while extending a heartfelt welcome to newcomers. Your involvement creates a tangible impact at the local level, enabling us to cultivate a thriving community that flourishes.


Grab a bicycle, dust off your runners and invite a friend. Together let's ride for refuge, ride for hope, and ride for a future where everyone feels and knows they belong!
