Mercy Housing’s Refugee Housing Program—operating under a grant by the Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR)—collected promising practices and success stories in refugee housing across the country. This collection is available by downloading a copy of “At Home with Refugee Housing: Resettlement to Integration” or by contacting us with your order. The Refugee Housing Program hopes that the publication will be not only a celebration of successful initiatives around the United States, but we also expect that the collection will be a source of inspiration for others who are struggling with some of the challenges in helping refugees find quality housing.
In addition to this publication, we highlight innovations in refugee housing in our monthly listserv. We’d love to hear from you!
