Adam House

Adam House

With the helping hands of donors, Adam House strives to make the newcomers feel they were being expected all along; like they have come home! Imagine a time when a newcomer arrives only to find there is no bed available and must reside in a homeless shelter instead! Our caring staff guides clients throughout the refugee claim process and beyond, as well as, providing referrals to external agencies, and assisting with settling in the community.

Hundreds of refugees who come to Toronto every month are faced with the challenge to find decent housing and to navigate through the refugee determination system. Adam House has assisted 1,800 of those refugees from all over the world, to settle in Toronto.
