About REST


In 2016, REST was able to resettle a Syrian family of 8 to the Waterloo Region through the private refugee sponsorship program. The REST team provided financial support and walked alongside them for one year - a year that transformed everyone involved and taught us so much about God’s unconditional love!

We’re now preparing to welcome another refugee family into our community! Keep scrolling to see how you can partner with REST.

Three ways you can support our new REST family



It costs $35,500 to welcome a family of 3 to Canada. We’ve already secured $12,000, and need support to raise the rest of the funds.
