Refugee Claim Process Support


After fleeing violence, oppression, and persecution, refugee claimants now face the immediate reality of providing for their families and navigating through the refugee claims process. MCRS walks alongside individuals and families by helping with complex paperwork, assisting with interpretation and by connecting them with healthcare, schooling and employment services.

How we support refugee claimants:

MCRS supports refugee claimants by providing the following:

  • Caring and welcoming emotional support 
  • Help completing documents for required for the claims process 
  • Translation services
  • Interpreters if needed for various interviews related to the claims process
  • Help finding legal support
  • Referrals to suitable housing
  • Referrals to community resources
  • Advocacy on their behalf as needed

All this would not be possible without the many incredible volunteers who serve in our volunteer programs
