About

Operating as a community initiative of First Baptist Church (255 Woolwich Street, Guelph) the Refugee Sponsorship Forum (Forum) provides information on refugee sponsorship, educational opportunities and coordination to refugee sponsorship groups in Guelph and area.

Through regular (usually monthly) meetings the Forum provides the opportunity for individuals interested in refugee sponsorship to join existing refugee sponsorship groups or to form a new private refugee sponsorship group.

Also, the Forum provides educational opportunities on topics such as the refugee sponsorship process, the refugee experience, how to fundraise, and support services available within the community for refugees.

Finally, the Forum encourages and supports peer-to-peer networking and collaboration between the sponsorship groups in Guelph and area along with volunteer support.
