About this event

Home is Here cultivates community-based networks of support with newly arriving immigrants in the U.S. Gulf South region. We share a vision with organizations across the country such as the Interfaith Community for Detained Immigrants, the Colorado Hosting Asylum Network, and many others who are working for a world where newly arriving asylum-seekers and other immigrants have access to what they need to survive, build, thrive, and belong within communities throughout the U.S.

With ICE's broad reliance on detention, border shelters stretched beyond capacity and resettlement agencies limited by federal funding restrictions on service eligibility, we are in a moment of need for a practical "how to" conversation about creative approaches to building community housing and networks of solidarity with newly arriving asylum-seekers and other immigrants.

Please join us for a collaborative learning and thought partnership session among organizations based in interior cities like Denver, Chicago, and New Orleans who have developed innovative non-shelter models to meet the need for housing and long-term resettlement support with newly arriving asylum-seekers and immigrants in communities across the U.S.
