"Join the London Cross Cultural Learner Centre and help build a more welcoming community where newcomers can succeed and reach their full potential for a brighter future."
Home at last! Our new project will provide newcomers with a safe and affordable rental apartment to call home. Join the CCLC and help build a new refugee housing complex with social and resettlement services to help them build a new life in London.
Highest Priority Needs
Your gift will be directed where it’s needed most. With your help, we can support newcomer programs or special projects, purchase new equipment, or meet unexpected expenses.
Help newcomers understand the power of their voice. Your gift will provide specialized training to help them share their story with the community. There is no fee to book our trained speakers but donations are gratefully accepted to support the program. Visit the CCLC’s Speakers Bureau page for more information.
Josephs' House offers refugee claimants and other vulnerable newcomers a safe, temporary home. Onsite staff provide guidance, support, and information to help them succeed in their resettlement journey. The House can continue to provide shelter and support, thanks to donors like you.
LGBTQ+ Activities and Events
Support social events, education, and awareness activities for CCLC’s LGBTQ+ newcomer programming group.
Josephs’ House Scholarship
Education opens doors to possibilities. Support a scholarship that will help refugees further their education at a Canadian college or university.
Staying healthy is important. Ensure refugee claimants and other vulnerable newcomers who are experiencing a medical crisis, can pay for medication, medical devices, and other related expenses.
Refugee Emergency Housing
Help refugees stay safe in their homes. When faced with an emergency or sudden loss of employment, it can be difficult to keep up with monthly rental payments. Your donation will ensure refugees can still have a place to call home during a crisis.
Sports and Recreation
Keeping newcomers active and connected to their new community is an important step in resettlement. Support sport & recreational activities throughout the year to build newcomers’ mental and physical well-being.
When newcomers are unwell but unable to afford taxi fares for a medical appointment or if they require bus tickets to critical appointments, your support will ensure newcomers don’t miss important appointments.
Ukraine Newcomer Fund
This short-term fund will support the immediate needs of those living and studying in London who have been affected by the crisis in Ukraine in 2022. Newcomers, including refugees and/or claimants, as well as those who hold a valid visitor visa, or open work and study permit holders issued because of the crisis in Ukraine will be supported.
