Refuge is a registered, incorporated not-for-profit organization which operates using a clinician-funded model. Our work is further strengthened by a strong and passionate team, dedicating their time and resources to meeting the needs of newcomers.

Your generous donations will go a long way in ensuring that many of the most vulnerable, yet resilient, newcomers to our community, receive timely and tailored access to quality health care services.

We also accept donations of new or gently used clothing for new families to Canada.  Consider donating care packages, holiday gifts, basic needs such as socks, gloves, hats, winter coats.  Please inquire at info@newcomerhealth.ca.

How can you help?

  • $50 will ensure that a client receives culturally effective mental health counselling

  • $25 will ensure that a client receives interpretation services for a health appointment

  • $20 will subsidize the cost of a care or welcome package for newly-arrived families
