CALM - COMME A LA MAISON

Allowing refugees to access flatsharing in Brussels.

"Comme A La Maison" - french acronym for Make Yourself At Home -connects Brussels housemates and refugees and enables them to share their housing on a long-term basis. Together, you live a rich experience, encourage diversity and create opportunities to discover new realities.

 

How does it work? 
 
On the one hand, there is a flat with an empty room with Brussels natives who would like to discover new ways of living, thinking, or cooking.
