Refugee Support

Tenth is working together with organizations and churches in Vancouver and the Middle East to welcome, settle and empower refugees. Learn more about what we do...there is a place for you to get involved.

EXCITING UPDATE & URGENT NEED

We recently received a family of six—a dad, mom, two teens, and two elementary school-aged kids. With a growing number of people to welcome, settle, and empower, our refugee support team needs to grow, too—and we have mentors to equip you. Able to help? Email [email protected].

We also have an immediate need for this new family to find long-term housing. If you have or know of a place for them to live, please contact [email protected].

Refugee Partner Organizations

JOURNEY HOME COMMUNITY | VANCOUVER 

Arriving as a refugee in Vancouver can be a daunting experience. In partnership with Journey Home Community (JHC), we walk alongside Refugee Claimant Families. One example of this support is JHC's Shalom House, which offers newcomers shelter and live-in care.

FIRST CHRISTIAN REFORMED CHURCH | VANCOUVER

Friendship and community are important in serving refugees. In partnership with First Christian Reformed Church (1st CRC), next to the ISS Refugee Welcome Centre, we celebrate cultural diversity through shared experiences. Join an upcoming art night or dinner.

FREE EVANGELICAL ASSOCIATION OF LEBANON - PARTNERS INTERNATIONAL 

With over 1 million Syrian refugees in Lebanon, the Free Evangelical Association of Lebanon (FEAL) responded to the need for a targeted, sustainable program to provide a safe haven for children and women. Called Oasis, this program is a safe place that offers friendship, education, nutrition, and skills training. Tenth also supports a FEAL Pastor in Syria and is working to equip pastors in the region.
