HOW TO HELP
To help ensure that Syrian newcomers are engaged and fully integrated into Hamilton, Wesley Urban Ministries is currently seeking volunteers to be Friends of Newcomers. This new initiative is designed for community members to provide social and community connections to newcomers. The newcomers will still continue to receive support from a Wesley staff member for up to a year.
Wesley is hosting information sessions on Friends of Newcomers. To learn more about the application process, contact Rebecca Young, Special Events & Volunteer Coordinator, at firstname.lastname@example.org. For any groups interested in privately sponsoring refugees, please contact Rita Balla, Private Sponsorship Specialist at email@example.com. For more information, click here.
