Since TRAC's beginning, our main project has been to sponsor a refugee family in their first year of resettlement through a partnership with MCC.
Our fundraising goal of nearly $30,000 was reached 2.5 months after we launched, and in June 2017 we were matched with a family of five from the Democratic Republic of the Congo! The Kapanda family arrived at the end of August 2017 and it has been an experience full of joy and mutual learning. We have received a tremendous amount of support from the TWU and surrounding community and are so excited to continue on this journey.
