Matthew House believes that God's call to "welcome the stranger" includes refugee claimants from all nations, irrespective of ethnicity, religion, political ideology, or sexual orientation. Matthew House strives to be a place where God's love is felt and communicated within an atmosphere of welcome and peace. Since opening as a permanent home in August 1998, Matthew House has provided shelter and assistance for hundreds of newly arrived refugees who would otherwise have been homeless in Toronto.

Toronto City Mission
Since 1879, Toronto City Mission (TCM) has been reaching out to the people living in poverty through relief assistance and evangelism. In order to break the endless cycles of poverty, TCM believes in holistic approach, that is, addressing the person's entire needs (physical, mental, emotional, spiritual, etc.). In the local communities of St. James Town, Malvern, Jane/Finch, Bridletowne and Willowtree, TCM is partnering with local organizations and churches to provide programs that focus on developing and transforming children, families and communities as well as building trusting relationships with community staffs and volunteers.
