Umoja Operation Compassion Society of BC

Reaching out to African Immigrant and Refugee Families and Youth

Umoja's Literacy and Life-Skills program that has been running successfully for three years. The program has been designed to address the specific needs of immigrants and refugees from war-torn countries. Our most recent survey indicates that 100% of the participants are satisfied with the program and have reported that the program has met their literacy and life skills needs and has helped them adapt to their new country. So far more than 100 immigrants have participated in the program. Our intention is to continue to offer this vital program and also extend it to the youth. The project has two components to it: (A) The Literacy: English reading, writing, conversation and numeracy. For the youth, we will add the homework assistance component. Participants will attend Literacy/homework program 3 times a week from 4:30-6:30pm. (B) Life Skills: Once a week 6-8pm the project will build Canadian life and leadership skills to integrate successfully into the society through workshops, speakers and out trips.

Stepping Stones for Families: Ready to Rent

The Stepping Stones Steering Committee of 11 agencies developed a program for families who cannot find, keep and/or maintain housing. Many of these families have poor housing references and are not accepted into even the most basic of housing units. This program offers a 12-hour course called Ready to Rent that prepares families to be good tenants and provides support for up to six months to the families. They are seeking funding to stabilize the program, which started a year and a half ago, and also to develop a business plan, do a cost-benefit analysis and create a strong governance model.
