Responding to the Syrian Refugee Crisis

Responding to the Syrian Refugee Crisis

We believe in building a safe, inclusive community for all, which is why United Way Peterborough & District is part of the community task force charged with helping welcome 1,000 Syrian refugees to the Peterborough area.

United Way partner agency New Canadians Center will be facilitating the creation of the task force, expected to be made up of representatives from Trent University, Fleming College, Peterborough Police, the Peterborough County-City Health Unit, United Way Peterborough and District and the Peterborough Regional Health Centre.
