Thank You For Your Donation To JIAS Toronto.
JIAS Toronto is the only Jewish community agency in the country with the sole mandate to welcome, settle, and integrate new immigrants. Rooted in Jewish values and guided by the principle of “welcoming the stranger in our midst,” we support refugees and immigrants from diverse backgrounds to help build a strong Jewish community and a strong Canada.
Your donation to JIAS Toronto helps ensure that we fulfill our mission. We believe that newcomers have the right to be warmly welcomed, well served, and connected to communities. The services provided by JIAS Toronto help provide newcomers with information, choices and opportunities that will empower them towards self-reliance.
JIAS Toronto’s multi-lingual settlement staff help each newcomer to develop a settlement plan and ensure that they have information and guidance as they settle in a new country and navigate Canadian systems. Your gift to JIAS Toronto will help:
- Provide settlement supports, such as assistance with government benefits, navigating Canadian systems (housing, transit, healthcare, financial)
- Help connect newcomers to people, programs and resources in the community that will help them to develop a sense of belonging.
- Train and support volunteers to be able to provide culturally competent, trauma-informed supports to vulnerable newcomers
- Fund a wide range of programs for newcomer adults and children to support their settlement, language acquisition, and integration into community life
JIAS (Jewish Immigrant Aid Services) was founded by the Jewish community 100 years ago and is proud to help build a strong Canada!
