Many refugees have walked hundreds of treacherous miles to seek the safety of Canada; will you walk or run on their behalf? By joining the Matthew House team you will have the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of refugee claimants who have come to our city seeking asylum.
Sadly, many arrive in Toronto not knowing where to turn for help and are forced to stay at rough city hostels, where they are often retraumatized.
Matthew House is a community of 3 homes in central Toronto that warmly welcomes and assists newly arrived refugee claimants. We help with all their settlement needs, assist with the refugee claim process and establishment in permanent accommodation. Our transition homes provide help for extra vulnerable residents where they live long term in a supportive environment. Most of all we provide a caring community for some of the most vulnerable people in our city.
We invite you to join us! We promise you a fun time, a free team shirt and a nametag for your shoes of a refugee for whom you can run!
