CALM - COMME A LA MAISON
Hosting as a springboard for the inclusion of refugees
In Belgium, after obtaining refugee status, a person has two months to leave the asylum centre and find a new place to live. Failing this you can end up on the streets. How can you do this without necessarily knowing the language, the social and cultural codes, or even the city, in such a short timeframe?
CALM - (Comme A La Maison) - Like at Home - is a project that matches those with refugee status and those living in Brussels who want to open their homes and provide a temporary housing situation. CALM offers a period of intergration of 3-9 months, which allows participants time to focus on their future and aids their social and professional integration into society.
