Due to the reality of COVID-19, Romero House has limited in-person volunteer activities to fully vaccinated people. There remain some virtual options (ESL conversation practice, resume building support, remote interpretation and translation etc). Please be aware of this as you consider applying as a volunteer.

The spirit of volunteerism

is at the heart of Romero House. We depend on the generosity of our neighbours and other volunteers to sustain our work. There are many volunteer opportunities that allow you to bring your gifts to participate in welcoming refugees.

Check out our current volunteer roles.

Are you willing to host a refugee family in your home?

The Toronto shelter system is under significant pressure as the physical distancing requirements of COVID-19 have limited capacity. To make sure that the refugee families showing up at our centre have a safe place to stay, we are looking for community hosts to temporarily host families until a more permanent space is found. If you are interested in learning more about becoming a community host, please fill out and send this application form to info@romerohouse.org
