Long Term Housing Required for Syrian Family of Five

A newly arrived Syrian refugee family is in need of long term housing.

There is a husband and wife and three children: a 13 year old boy who speaks a little English, a 11 year old girl and a 3 year old boy. The father is a dentist with very good English. This nuclear family has relatives here already, established in the community, so they have a good support network.

Right now all five are staying in a basement apartment made available by generous donors from Western Ontario Friends of Refugees. Though grateful and gracious, what the family require is something larger and more long term.

In particular, they are looking for a 3 bedroom townhouse with gas heat (to keep it affordable). And the parents are anxious that the children will attend a good school.
