We’ve released our Community Impact Report for 2021
We’ve released our annual Community Impact Report which highlights our organization’s impact during April 2020 to March 2021.
The year April 2020 to March 2021 marked the arrival of the Covid-19 pandemic.
As was the case all over our world, Reception House was forced to adapt and innovate as the year progressed. Through it all, we continued to be the region’s most comprehensive refugee serving agency serving the most vulnerable group of newcomers – government assisted refugees (GARs).
