Enabling refugees to access dignified housing is still a major challenge for Caritas Luxembourg.
We run 12 centres for international protection seekers, with a combined accommodation capacity of 1,124 beds.
For long-term accommodation purposes, Caritas Luxembourg had 127 homes at its disposal in late 2018, in which it accommodated 422 refugees and migrants. Some of these homes are reserved for young people.
The number of homes is increasing in relation to previous years (+30 in 2017, +26 in 2018). Important efforts are made to find privately-owned homes which the owners were willing to lease at a moderate social rent. Let’s not forget that a home is an important factor of integration because it determines where the persons will be able to build their social life. ,
But we are still a long way off. Caritas Luxembourg continues to look for privately-owned homes.
