Children and families coming from experiences of war and forced migration, often cope with traumatic past experiences while facing the challenges of settlement in their new home.

Turtle House provides a welcoming and inclusive environment for Newcomer/refugee families from different ethno-racial, cultural, linguistic and faith backgrounds. Through art, conversation, and shared meals, parents and children are able to connect with each other, build relationships with other families and with Turtle House artists and volunteers.

Your donations are critical in enabling us to continue to offer our very valuable programs free of cost to children and parents coming from regions of conflict.
