There is no system in place to assist them and hence they sometimes spend their first night in Canada literally on the street or at rough homeless shelters. Despite having reached a safe country, they are at risk of being victimized and re-traumatized. Protego Foster Houses serves this group of very vulnerable refugee claimants.
We welcome all refugees regardless of their race, religion, sexual orientation or political opinion. We strive to make Protego Foster Houses a place where the love is felt and experienced and where refugee’s dignity and hope are restored.
In addition to our main reception house, we have two transition homes where extra vulnerable residents such as unaccompanied teens or single mothers may stay and receive longer term support.
In short, the Protego Foster Houses community serves as a “sponsor” by default for those who seek asylum in Canada and have no support system of their own.
We exist thanks to Canadians who care about the plight of refugees. We welcome your tangible support in helping us serve the “forgotten refugees” arriving on our doorstep daily. Thank you!
