The Newcomers project is part of Armenian Family Support Services (AFSS), a charitable non-profit organization established in 2004 to help the members of the Armenian community in Toronto, particularly the newcomer families making their transition smooth and painless. AFSS provides counseling, referrals and workshops on important settlement issues, fosters volunteer activity to support integration of the newcomers into the community and delivers the Help Immediate Members Appeal (HIMA) program, assisting members of community with basic needs of accommodation, transportation, household items.
