An asylum seeker who has an officially recognised refugee document must leave the refugee centre within two months. That is a virtually impossible feat. The housing cafe is there to help. Integration coaches and volunteers guide recognised refugees in their search for housing. Contacting housing property owners, helping a family move into a home, registration with the municipality and with the PCSW, look for a school: it is all part of the process.
Access to housing is extremely difficult for a refugee who has just been recognized.
Hundreds of volunteers refuse to ignore refugees in distress and commit to volunteering with Caritas International. What about you? Do you want to put your skills to work in service of those most in need?Become a volunteer
