What is it about?

Refugees Welcome brings together refugees and flatshares that have living space available. Our aim is to facilitate sustainable and participatory integration through low-threshold cohabitation. By drawing refugees into the midst of our society we create spaces for communication and shared experiences, foster social networks, eliminate prejudice and facilitate familiarity with the German language.
