The First Step Campaign

Whether it is the first step off a plane, bus or train, the Foundation of Hope envisions a world where there will be supports to assist LGBT+ refugees and newcomers from that first step.

The Foundation of Hope began with a simple action of caring. In 2013 a group of community members came together to sponsor two Syrian refugees. The First Step Campaign will ensure supports and services are focused toward LGBT+ refugees and newcomers.

The purpose of the Foundation of Hope is to financially support non-profit Canadian Charities working with LGBT+ refugees, newcomers, asylum seekers and migrants.

Help us in our vision: A world where LGBT+ refugees and newcomers can live safely and be themselves~
