What moves you? Join us on October 5, 2019 for the Ride for Refuge, a family-friendly cycling and walking fundraiser that supports charities who provide refuge and hope for displaced, vulnerable and exploited people everywhere.

About Journey Home Community

Journey Home Community exists to welcome newly arriving refugee claimant families in the Metro Vancouver area. Money raised from the RIDE will be allocated to providing housing, holistic settlement support and relational support for refugee families seeking protection. They have fled persecution and intent on making a new home in a safe place, utilizing 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 Oct 5th!
