Waarom stopt RefugeeHomeNL?

Why has RefugeeHomeNL ended?

The four organizations and the ministry have collectively decided not to apply for new funding for the year 2024. The main reason for ending the program is the significant decline in demand from guests and available host families. Additionally, it has become increasingly challenging to match the preferred locations of the displaced individuals (Randstad and larger cities) with the available host families. Cohabitation through RefugeeHomeNL is typically undertaken for a 3-month period. In some cases, guests and host families decide to continue cohabiting through mutual agreement. Cohabitation generally takes place in good harmony. The need for support and guidance for these long-term cohabitants is therefore minimal. There is also a natural decline in the number of cohabitations. Some Ukrainian displaced individuals return to Ukraine, or they manage to find independent housing on their own.
