A Community Response to Crisis
In response to the Syrian refugee crisis that has seen millions of Syrians fleeing their homes because of civil war, a group of concerned neighbours came together to sponsor a Syrian family for resettlement in Vancouver. After attending public information sessions hosted by MOSAIC and ISS (Immigrant Services Society) the call was put out to neighbours and friends to gather and begin charting the course of private refugee sponsorship. We partnered with the Grandview Calvary Baptist Church (GCBC). GCBC is a registered charitable organization which acts as our “Sponsorship Agreement Holder,” assisting with administration of funding. We named ourselves the “Parker Street Sponsorship Initiative (PSSI).”
