Newcomer Women’s Services Toronto was founded by a group of Latin American refugees in 1983. For the past 30 years, we’ve been helping immigrant women and men from all around the world to become part of the wider community.
With the help of volunteers and community partners, our friendly staff provides employment and settlement services, skills development, and language training, completely free of charge. There are also programs for children, including childcare for kids between 19 months and 6 years of age.
Our services are free, thanks to our funders and partners. NEW provides a safe, welcoming environment for newcomer women and their families. For many of the staff and participants, we are like a second home and there’s always room for more!
