About Kinbrace

When you welcome a person seeking refugee protection, you launch a safety net that quickens their experience of belonging, helps them settle, provides protection, and leads to community transformation.


For refugee claimants, Canada is a beacon of safety and protection from persecution elsewhere in the world. Getting to Canada can be risky, and arrival is often troubled by homelessness, fears, tears, and sheer survival.


Svente, mother of two, asks: Who can we trust? Where will we sleep tonight? How do I find a lawyer for my refugee claim? Can my children go to school? What do I need to do next....?


With a safe place to call home, clear information, and a community of belonging, refugee claimants like Svente and her children settle faster and get the protection they need.


Your help means they thrive, our country grows more vibrant, the world becomes more safe, and we all learn and grow in relationship.


Welcome to the Kinbrace Ride for Refuge! Your generosity provides housing, education, and wrap-around community support for refugee claimants.
