Inasmuch Community Society provides transition housing, settlement services, customized employment counseling and basic living support in the first few months following an asylum seeker’s arrival in BC.

Our purpose is to create a family, a home and a supportive community for refugee claimants.

We support them through the challenges of the refugee claim process and share each other’s joys along the way. We create ongoing community through big family meals, birthday celebrations and seasonal events like Easter, an annual Summer picnic, Thanksgiving and Christmas. We walk alongside them through their journey and they become part of our big and diverse family. At the heart of what we do, and the key to the success of the refugee program is the unique combination of personalized settlement services and our Canadian cultural English language education program. This combination has enabled the refugee claimants to find work, volunteer, make friends and integrate very successfully into Canadian society.

Bottom line, we help our family members thrive in their new community and a feel a true sense of belonging. Because, as our logo underlines, Inasmuch is their home.
