About us

The Multicultural Helping House Society – Newcomers Resource Center (MHHS – NRC) is a registered non-profit society and charitable organization dedicated to serving the needs of new comers to Canada.  In its 15-year history, the MHHS-NRC has provided assistance to thousands of new immigrants in addressing their needs from settlement, employment, social services, skills enhancement, respite housing, legal assistance, and education services.

Though the years, the society has been well-known for its ability to provide immediate assistance to individuals in crisis and those who are disadvantaged either because of language, employment or social isolation.

Duly recognized and supported by the three levels of government – City, Provincial and Federal – the MHHS-NRC provides programs for all immigrants regardless of ethnicity.  It also runs special programs centered on the youth, senior citizens and families.

The MHHS-NRC continues to operate based on the virtue of volunteerism, the moving force behind the society’s inception in 1996.  The society’s success is attributed to its ability to collaborate and partner with members of the community, its donors and its volunteers.
