provided to traumatized newcomers!
This year, RIVO celebrates 25 years of psychological support for vulnerable newcomers. To mark this important anniversary, the supportive care network launched its "From Surviving to Living" campaign, which spans the entire year 2018. We aim to raise $ 50,000 to continue helping those in need.

Our mission is to support the rehabilitation and integration, in Quebec, of newcomers and any other person traumatized by organized violence – whether political, social, identity or religious. Our interventions extend beyond the individual refugee, reaching out to entire communities of family and friends.
Based in Montreal, RIVO offers free counselling to refugees and asylum seekers to help them overcome the consequences of violence suffered abroad. While assisting newcomers in rebuilding their lives, RIVO helps them reconnect with their families, integrate into their neighbourhoods and fully contribute to their host society.
