EOOR Refugee Network Educational Event

October 26

Please save-the-date for Saturday, October 26, 2024, to join the EOOR Refugee Network’s educational event. The workshop will include presentations from the Refugee Sponsorship Training Program and Settlement Agencies, and information from the three Sponsorship Agreement Holders with which most of us in this region work. We hope to cover such topics as SAH allocations and guidelines; the role of settlement agencies; finances and fundraising; support from RSTP and meeting the quality assurance requirements from IRCC; and refugee status documents, the problems of defining who is a refugee and figuring out what programs might be available to them. Refugee ministry ranges from preparing applications and facilitating co-sponsorships, to “sponsoring the stranger” through the BVOR program; to fundraising and volunteering for settlement tasks. Supporting churches and volunteers through education, and sharing our wisdom and experience, is the Refugee Network’s primary goal. The location will be announced soon, so put October 26 on your calendars.
