The Kinbrace community welcomes refugee claimants with housing, education, and support. Kinbrace is BC’s longest-serving housing provider for refugee claimants, offering dedicated support and accessible educational resources across Canada.  

Kinbrace was birthed by Grandview Calvary Baptist Church in 1998 as British Columbia's first dedicated housing for refugee claimants.

Core Values


We are in solidarity:  bearing witness to exile, we live with refugee claimants.


We are a community:  affirming dignity, we commit to the best in one another.

Mutual Transformation

We are diverse:  striving to listen well, we learn and grow.


We are grateful:  amidst joy and sorrow, we discover hope.


We are sojourners:  held by grace, we journey into the mystery and love of God.
