Promising Practices

The housing crisis facing U.S. citizens and refugee newcomers alike calls for innovation in the way we create, repurpose, and allocate housing.

One of Refugee Housing Solutions’ initiatives centers on sharing innovation in housing practices. In 2023, RHS began collecting submissions of its completed Housing Best Practices Toolkit Template from community stakeholders (including faith groups, churches, and educational institutions) and refugee resettlement agencies.

These toolkits provide an overview of innovative projects embarked upon by these stakeholders to harness new and imaginative ideas for facing housing challenges. Each toolkit details project set-up, operations, key successes, and recommendations that others may implement or adapt to help create more affordable, dignified housing for newcomers.

Do you have a promising practice in housing? Let us know!

Innovators can inspire resettlement stakeholders to help address the U.S. housing shortage.
