Did You Know? Reception House receives roughly 754 newcomer refugees in a year. All stay in our temporary accommodation or hotels until a permanent home is found. We help in the search to find every individual and family their first home in Waterloo Region and surrounding areas (i.e. Guelph, Stratford). If you have a room or home available to rent, we can almost guarantee we have an individual or family we can match to it!
The people we support can vary from single men or women all the way up to families of 10. Everyone we serve are looking for housing available immediately or within a month. Most of our individuals and families are looking for places that they can rent for at least a year, but many are likely to be long term tenants looking to put down roots and make connections in their new neighbourhood.
If you are a landlord, please fill out the form linked below so we can best match a newcomer family to your rental accommodation. The form should take under 5 mins to fill out. After submission, someone from our housing team will reach out to you within a few business days.
