Nature and Context

One of the first and most challenging steps of this process is to find affordable housing that also meets a suite of additional constraints and priorities such as proximity to public transit (since most refugees do not own a vehicle), schools (since most of them have children of school age), supermarkets (halal, international), ESL classes, faith communities and other. Helping these refugees settle can strengthen the communities they are becoming a part of.
