Affordable housing is a largely insurmountable obstacle for newly arriving refugee claimants in the Greater Vancouver area.  As one small solution to this big problem, I am delighted to tell you about Meanwhile Spaces and the beautiful opportunity that we recently were given. Journey Home Community, our main partner in Refugee Support, awarded us with an 8 bedroom house to use for refugee settlement in Coquitlam for at least one year.  A Meanwhile Space is an initiative that utilizes empty apartments and houses waiting for redevelopment, providing refugees with transitional housing. There are lots of moving parts and things have come together quickly.   

We are in the process of developing teams that will be involved in the following areas:  Housing, Friendship, Essentials of Life, Education, English, Vocation.
