Matthew House Ottawa: Refugee Services and Furniture Bank (MHO) is a faith-based, volunteer driven charity with the vision to be a transformative model of excellence caring for Ottawa’s marginalized population.
MHO achieves their mission though two programs:
The Furniture Bank distributes quality used furniture and household goods to Ottawa’s marginalized population. In 2015, MHO provided free furniture and household goods to 605 families in Ottawa.
Refugee Services provides shelter, food, and refugee settlement assistance, including volunteer opportunities, in a family atmosphere to refugee claimants so that they may begin their journey to independence as members in Canadian society. In 2015, MHO provided a home for 24 refugee claimants from 14 countries.
