Housing for Newcomers
As CWS programs welcome refugees and other newcomers to the U.S., one of a new arrival's biggest hurdles is obtaining permanent housing. Housing, or shelter, is the base of a person's hierarchy of needs. In order to thrive in their new lives, safe and affordable housing is imperative. CWS is always looking for partners in housing, whether you're a national company with units across the U.S., a property manager of an apartment complex or private landlord with a couple of properties, we are interested in partnering. CWS has also partnered with temporary housing partners such as Airbnb, Hyatt, and HomeTowne Suites by Red Roof and looks to add additional partnerships to provide safe landing for newcomers when permanent housing cannot be identified upon arrival.
If you are interested in partnering with CWS in providing safe, affordable housing to newcomers, do not hesitate to reach out to us at: Housing@cwsglobal.org
CWS also leads Refugee Housing Solutions, a project of CWS under an agreement paid for by the U.S. Department of State. Refugee Housing Solutions provides resources, training, and support for resettlement practitioners, landlords, property owners, and refugees to expand access to quality housing for refugee families and newcomers. Refugee Housing Solutions is also at the forefront of capacity development to continue the work of CWS and other national resettlement agencies in welcoming newcomers to the United States.
