What is Unite for Refugees?
Unite for Refugees is a coalition of individuals and organizations in St. Thomas and Elgin County committed to sharing resources and strengths to create a welcoming community for refugees. The world-wide refugee situation is of great concern to many residents of St. Thomas-Elgin. As a result, our community is working to build a strong network of volunteers that will welcome refugee families.
Groups have been supporting refugees in the community for many years and have developed a strong foundation of knowledge and skills. Unite for Refugees works to connect these experienced sponsors with first time sponsors that would like to get involved in any capacity. Join us as our community works to support, connect, and organize learning opportunities on refugee sponsorship to ensure that St. Thomas-Elgin is ready to resettle and welcome refugee families.
