Success Stories

It takes a community to help 124 government-assisted refugees in making Kingston home.

The Refugee Resettlement Services Kingston (RRSK) project, a joint initiative of KEYS Job Centre and Kingston Community Health Centres has supported 124 government-assisted refugees - from Syria, from Burundi and from Iraq - with making Kingston home. Services provided include provision of temporary accommodation, orientation to life in Canada, linkages to government programs, assistance with finding permanent accommodation, life skills support and connections to the community.

Many of our Success Stories couldn't be possible without the generous support of volunteers throughout our community. To learn more on how you can help support KEYS with projects like these CLICK HERE.
