Donations for Refugees in Abbotsford
Support for Refugees
Archway provides a number of supports for newcomers to Abbotsford including one-to-one support, employment assistance, counselling, friendship matches and language classes.
We have a long history of working with newcomers from all around the world. In 2016, Archway played a key role in welcoming refugees from Syria. We are now preparing to welcome refugees from Afghanistan as a part of the Resettlement Assistance program which will see 40,000 Afghans resettle in Canada. We are also actively working with displaced Ukrainians.
Funding from the provincial and federal governments enables us to support newcomers in many ways including language classes, employment assistance and settlement support. Your donations will provide access to nutrition, recreation and supplies. Thank you for helping refugees feel at home in Canada as they navigate a new country, language and culture.
If you are interested in helping newcomers settle into our community, you can see our current volunteer opportunities here.
We are not currently set up to receive physical donations of furniture or clothing but are collecting information of offers if and when this changes.
