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.”

On October 5th, you helped us go the distance for a great cause!
Earlier this year, Reception House staff, friends, volunteers and supporters came together to get a little sweat on for a great cause, helping us reach our goal of $15,000 at Ride for Refuge 2019.
Thank you to everyone for supporting our mission to Shine a Light on the Refugee Journey – we are incredibly thankful for all of our wonderful community members, donors and staff members!
