Let’s Build


Coming from the most war-torn, poverty stricken countries around the world children, women and men will seek refuge at Sojourn House. Our shelter and transitional housing programs assist them with their integration into Canadian society. By offering shelter, safety and other essential services, Sojourn House is the helping hand and the umbrella of hope for refugees while they begin to rebuild a life in Toronto.
