How You Can Help

Help a refugee and make a difference.

 

There are a number of ways you can get involved to support New Hope. Your generous contribution helps create a brighter future for those in need.

Volunteer

Become the  heart of our organization. Join our group of committed, loving volunteers who help us with women’s ESL classes, tutoring, children’s activities, movie nights, janitorial duties, and more.

 

Get in touch to our volunteer coordinator Mindy at mindy@newhopecs.org.

Host a Community Meal

Every second Thursday, we invite our residents to dine together. Volunteers from local churches and community groups provide the meal. If you would be interested in sponsoring an upcoming dinner, please contact us for more information.

Support a Family with your Church

Many refugee families who reside at New Hope have a church family to support them. The support church team invests 6-10 hours per week to help the refugee family find life in Canada. This includes helping with shopping, medical care, transit, schooling for children, accessing libraries, public parks and recreation centres, and relationship building.

 

If your church wishes to take action and change a family’s life, please contact us at info@newhopecs.org.

Host a Fundraiser

Help us in raising funds for refugees. Transform lives by hosting your own fundraising campaign. Visit our Fundraising page for ideas or contact info@newhopecs.org for more information.

Organize a School Field Trip

New Hope has hosted field trips for several schools in the Lower Mainland who want to learn about what it means to be a refugee and the importance of helping those less fortunate than ourselves. Our staff has also visited local classrooms to present a workshop on refugee life.

 

If your school would be interested in this one-of-a-kind learning opportunity, please contact us. We can tailor a workshop to your needs.

Become a Corporate Sponsor

The corporate world understands the need to give back. Many already do. In addition to our corporate sponsorships with Vancity and Starbucks, we’re looking for other generous businesses to take up the challenge.

 

A corporate sponsor invests in families at New Hope with an annual donation of $3,200 or more. These funds help provide safe, stable housing for a vulnerable family who needs some help getting on their feet.

 

Our residents will also eventually be seeking employment as they get established in Canada. If you would be interested in providing employment opportunities for a refugee, please contact us.
