Abstract: 

Affordable housing has been the topic for many projects, resulting in numerous proposed solutions for supporting low-income families as well as refugees in need. This project proposes a new way of looking at the problem. It offers new solutions that can make a difference in people’s lives in the shortest time. Fast paced independence and integration of newcomers is the main goal of this new solution; however, creating opportunities and building support is not exclusive of other social groups. This project’s determination is to introduce a hub that can improve refugees’ quality of life by considering factors that can contribute to their mental and physical health. The aim is to provide refugees with a real sense of belonging in dignified homes, and to build a strong sense of self-confidence for a faster independence and contribution in the community as new Canadians.
