Our Stories

The neighbourhood house helped me to be grounded here and to realise that Canada is a great country. It has a lot of challenges, but I feel like these are my challenges now because I am a part of this country. It’s my country now, so, okay, what am I going to do to make it better?

[O]ne day an email went out that mentioned a support program for immigrant women at Kits Neighbourhood House. I joined the group and from that point on, things started to get better because I realized that many immigrants had gone through what I was going through. I felt less lonely and less afraid in my situation.
