Helping Refugees get settled in their new communities

According to the United States High Commission for Refugees (UNHCr), there are 65.3 million forcibly displaced people in the world today, 21.5 million of them being refugees. This has led to an unprecedented refugee crisis which has led countries to accept refugee families and to resettle them.

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.
