New Refugee-Facing Resources on Home Safety and Rental Housing

How can I keep myself and my family safe at home? What is a lease? What types of rental housing are there in the United States? These questions and more are central to conversations about housing during Cultural Orientation with refugees.  

Discover new housing resources to help you answer these and other questions. Resources were created in partnership with Refugee Housing Solutions, an advisory and technical assistance project funded by the U.S. Department of State. All resources align with the Domestic Housing Cultural Orientation Objectives and Indicators. Refugee Housing Solutions team members offer technical and informational housing support to resettlement practitioners and community volunteers and to government, faith, and private sector partners as well as newcomers and sponsors nationwide.
