When a refugee first arrives in Vancouver there is a need for friendly faces to regularly check in with them to assist with settlement support such as shopping for groceries, opening a bank account, getting to the doctor or learning about their neighbourhood. Later on there are challenges with securing work or learning to drive. Core team members who assist with settlement support become a critical lifeline for our refugee friends to successfully integrate into a new life in Canada.
