The Beach Cares (TBC) is a church and community Syrian Refugee sponsorship program, which was founded in 2015. It is a joint project of Beach United Church, The Anglican Church of St. Aidan and members of the local community.
TBC has completed the full sponsorship of two families and has begun a third sponsorship of a young Syrian woman.
In addition to direct sponsorships, TBC has assisted a number of other Syrian refugees families with various settlement challenges.
Many TBC volunteers continue to work with families subsequent to the ending of the sponsorship programs.
A fundraising event is planned on Friday, April 3 to raise funds to support the current sponsorship program, and assist in the ongoing support of the previous families.
TBC welcomes volunteers both for the ongoing refugee work but also for the fundraiser.
