Welcome the Stranger

Eventbrite - Welcoming The Stranger: Refugees Becoming Neighbours

New project to support refugees

Journey Home Community is taking action to respond to the current refugee crisis. We are hiring an additional staff person to support our current families so that our experienced staff can develop a new program to assist churches, groups, and individuals who wish to sponsor and care for newly arriving refugee families.

We believe this project will enhance the capacity of the wider community to welcome refugees who are seeking safety in this current global crisis and will cost approximately $45,000 per year.

Would you consider a monthly donation to support the mission of Journey Home Community to assist the many refugee families who are arriving and to help us expand our capacity through local churches?

Arrange your monthly donation or one-time gift by clicking here. Alternatively, send your gift by mail to 7175 Royal Oak Avenue, Burnaby BC, V5J 4J3. Please contact us if you have any questions or would like to learn of other ways you can be involved.

Refugee Hearing Preparation

A Refugee's Story

From a recent arrival to Canada from Afghanistan... “My first difficulties? They started right at the beginning. We didn’t know the country. Without a job and credit history, it was not easy to find housing for my nine-person family. Without a permit for work, without social assistance and money depleting rapidly, I really started to worry.

It was a blessing to us when James called me offering JHC services. They made available to us two partially furnished apartments in the Metrotown area, assisted with our moving, helped to register our children in school, and introduced us to Canadian legal procedures. We didn’t feel isolated and lonely anymore. It’s very important to be connected with people who care about you and understand you.”

Matthew 25:35
For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me.
