Frequently Asked Questions

Why was this portal created?

In November 2015, The City of Toronto recognized that the need to find housing would be one of the priority needs of refugees and their sponsors. As part of the City of Toronto’s Refugee Resettlement Program Council-approved the Toronto Newcomer Office entering into service agreements with community agencies to increase supports and resources available to new Torontonians and their sponsors.

WoodGreen Community Services was contracted by the City to create an online housing registry and expanded in-person housing help services for refugees and their sponsors. WoodGreen, along with the donated services of Deloitte and the Konrad Group have come together to create a new online portal to match Syrian refugees in need with offers of housing, goods and services. Based on an application built by Vlocity, H.O.M.E allows donors – both businesses and individuals – to post available housing, goods and services to help Syrian refugees arriving in Toronto

Although it was originally created to help ease the Settlement journey for Syrian Refugees, the HOME portal has now been expanded to serve all people in need of housing and other resources in Ontario.
