By 2030, more than three billion people around the world are estimated to experience a lack of adequate housing and basic services. Recent studies have shown that the United States currently has a shortage of 7.3 million affordable homes.

For refugees, asylum seekers and immigrants, finding permanent housing is one of the greatest challenges that newcomers face. Often, newcomers are forced into unsafe and overcrowded housing conditions, making it challenging to build new lives for themselves and their families.

CWS walks alongside our new neighbors as they arrive in the United States and helps families find a safe place to land. We connect families with our network of housing partners, like private landlords or property managers, and in situations where permanent housing is not immediately available, we identify temporary housing.

Everyone deserves a safe roof over their head. When we invest in our neighbors, they become valuable members of their communities. By joining hands, we can ensure that all who call the United States home have access to safe, affordable housing.
