"Omeed" is Persian for "Hope." The House of Omeed exists to inspire hope in the hearts of refugees and newcomers to Canada as they make this huge adjustment to their lives. Now transplanted in a new, unfamiliar, and often incomprehensible society, many challenges await newcomers. Language barriers, among other cultural barriers, can cause newcomers to lose hope of ever settling - and feeling comfortable - in their beautiful and relatively safe new home

The House of Omeed offers a number of settlement services to help bring hope, both spiritually and physically. The House Of Omeed assists newcomers and refugees through it’s settlement services such as; ESL classes, food safe courses, translation services, income tax clinics, employment searches and more. Additionally, they assist with finding housing, furniture and basic necessities. 

House Of Omeed also operates a culturally diverse food distribution that currently serves over 200 families.
