About Romero House:
Toronto Refugee Community Non-Profit Homes and Services, also known as Romero House (RH), has provided housing, settlement and advocacy services to more than 6,000 individuals and families since its inception in 1992. RH acts as a bridge between the shelter and more long-term housing for refugees. RH offers critical support to refugees by providing referrals to reputable lawyers, assistance with case management, health care, work permits, schools and day care and income support, among others. RH has four houses in the west end of Toronto, each within walking distance of the others. The houses are divided into living units where families can stay until their refugee hearing. Settlement services are primarily available to people living at RH, although when possible RH offers services to drop-ins.
Romero House works to build a community among the residents, workers, volunteers and neighbours. Activities for this purpose include monthly social gatherings, activities for kids, support groups for women, summer camp, weekend getaways, and seasonal holiday events. Interns run all of these programs and provide most of RH's support services. RH attempts to break away from the typical employee-client model of social work by having the interns live in the same houses as refugees.
The administrative costs are 4% of revenues and fundraising costs are 18% of donations for F2014. RH has a negative funding reserve due to mortgages payable of $926k. RH receives significant funding from the City of Toronto ($337k in F2014), mostly in the form of social housing subsidies of $200k in F2014.
This charity report is an update that is being reviewed by RH. Changes and edits may be forthcoming.
