Hope at the end of the refugee journey
Matthew House is a nationally recognized leader in welcoming, assisting and resettling newly arrived refugee claimants who would otherwise be homeless. In addition to our main reception house, we have two transition homes where particularly vulnerable residents, such as unaccompanied teens or single mothers, may stay and receive longer-term support.

Since opening in 1998, Matthew House has assisted over 1,400 refugee claimants from 98 nations. Additionally, Matthew House has developed the cutting-edge Refugee Hearing program, to assist refugee claimants with preparation for their hearing. This program, mirrors the actual process that a refugee will undergo at the Immigration and Refugee Board (IRB). The program has met with great success, resulting in positive decisions in roughly 90% of cases, well over the national average of just under 60%, over a three-year period.

We welcome all refugees regardless of their race, religion, sexual orientation or political opinion and we strive to make Matthew House a place where the dignity and hope of refugees are restored. Visit our website for more information.
