About PRSN

At PRSN, we believe in the power of community and collaboration. We provide a platform for private refugee sponsors to come together, share their experiences, and support one another in the important work of resettlement. Our organization is driven by dedicated volunteers who are passionate about making a difference in the lives of newcomers.

Why Choose PRSN
PRSN fills the gaps in support services for private sponsors. While settlement agencies and other service provider organizations may often be overwhelmed, we focus on addressing sponsor post-arrival issues and building relevant relationships within the refugee sector to meet sponsor need.

Services We Offer
Our services are designed to support private sponsors and sponsor groups throughout their settlement work. Whether you’re seeking networking opportunities, training resources, or mentorship, PRSN is here to help, free of charge. Experienced sponsors stand ready to mentor newcomers, offering immediate solutions to pressing challenges.

We’re continually developing new programs and services to better serve our community. Our regional Resource Provider Directory and Practice Guidelines are based on sponsor lived experience and evidenced-based research, ensuring sponsors have the tools they need to succeed. Additionally, we’re actively working to strengthen relationships between sponsors and settlement agencies, as well as sponsorship agreement holders.
