Reaching Out Assisting Refugees


ROAR is Reaching Out Assisting Refugees

Based in Nanaimo, we are volunteers dedicated to providing a safe haven to LGBTQ refugees facing serious persecution.


In our work to bring refugees to Canada and respectfully help them begin a new life in safety, we partner with Brechin United Church in Nanaimo and cooperate with other organizations around the country.

We acknowledge that for thousands of years the Snuneymuxw people have walked gently on the unceded territories where we now live, work and play. We seek a relationship with the first peoples here based in honour and respect, and we thank them for their hospitality.
