Jubilee Fund investors helped newcomers find settlement services and build connections.
The Christ Apostolic Church‘s Rehoboth Centre is incorporated as a non-profit, non- denominational, multicultural organization. The congregation is comprised of newcomers to Canada from Nigeria, Sierra Leonne and Ghana.
The Rehoboth Centre within Christ Apostolic Church supports members with a food bank, clothing and other support services offered by volunteers including financial coaching and peer counselling to help with settlement challenges. A teens’ group meets regularly to provide youth with an alternative to gangs and to increase their exposure to their culture. Special events provide opportunities for recent newcomers to interact with those that have lived experience in Canada and offer support and community.
The Jubilee Fund provided a loan guarantee towards the purchase of the Church in support of the settlement activities occurring at the Rehoboth Centre.
