Reception House Waterloo Region is a community-based organization that provides a warm welcome to government-assisted refugees.
Our programs and services assist refugees throughout their settlement and integration process, enabling them to lead healthy and productive lives in their new community.
We start by providing the basics: temporary residence, orientations to life in Canada and down the line, we empower those we serve to find meaningful employment, improve their language skills and heal from trauma and loss.
“Shining a light on the refugee journey means, building more connections, developing new opportunities and creating synergies that enable refugees to integrate and thrive in our community.”
