Housing asylum seekers.

Asylum Seeker Assistance Program

The Asylum Seeker Assistance Program (ASAP) is open to any asylum seeker needing help accessing services or understanding/completing documents.

ASAP does not require an appointment*. Just come to Hope House Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday afternoon between 12:00 pm (noon) and 3:00 p.m

Here are some of the areas where we can help:

  • Housing search and applications
  • Job search and application
  • Reading and understanding English mail & documents
  • Making appointments, finding other services and resources, and managing your schedule.
  • Completing work authorization forms*

*Please note: Work authorization form assistance is only offered on Wednesday afternoons. We strongly encourage you to call us to schedule a time with a  trained volunteer.  We are unable to assist with asylum applications or other legal matters.*

Come to Hope House, 14 Sherman Street, 12-3pm on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.
