End of the Rainbow Foundation

The End of the Rainbow Foundation foundation creates sponsorship circles (groups of five), hosts support groups, and provides education to help LGBTQ+ people settle in their homes and community.

Our foundation hosts the Calgary LGBTQ+ Refugee Centre; the Calgary Rainbow Railroad Station, settling SOGIESC refugees from outside Canada; and a variety of volunteer run support groups and mentor services. We host the National SOCIESC Sponsorship Fund designed to help sponsor LGBTQ+ refugees anywhere in Canada. We are dedicated to all people of any sexual orientation and gender identity (LGBTQ+ or SOGIESC1), whether they are longtime citizens, or new Canadian refugees, or immigrants.
