Adam House is a Christian refugee reception centre located in Toronto, Canada. We provide a safe and comfortable home for newly arrived refugee claimants who have chosen, at least temporarily, to settle in the GTA. Our caring staff provide assistance with the immigration and settlement process which can be very difficult to navigate. Since opening in September 2002, Adam House has served 1400* refugee claimants from countries around the world, from Afghanistan to Zimbabwe. We believe that God has called us to care for the very real needs of newcomers to Canada, and to share the Word of God as we have been called.
Adam House is named in honour and memory of Salah and Shaline Adam, and their children Joshua and Rebecca, who perished when Egypt Air Flight 990 went down on October 31, 1999.
