TMA Homes Not Borders Refugee Community Support VISTA
 
 
 
Since the fall of Kabul in August, 2021, Homes Not Borders has grown from a small volunteer group that prepared an average of one apartment per week for incoming refugees to one of the largest independent nonprofits serving refugees and SIVs in the greater DC area. Through partnerships with resettlement agencies, including the IRC, HNB now furnishes the equivalent of 6-10 apartments per week and has positively impacted dozens, if not hundreds, of newly arrived families. HNB endeavors to ensure that clients have access to the tools they need to thrive in their new homes, and that the apartments we prepare are not just places to sleep at night but homes where our clients can feel empowered and secure in all aspects of their lives. The TMA AmeriCorps VISTA will support implementation of programs that will prove critical in ensuring self-sufficiency and providing the tools our clients need to successfully grow and integrate in their new communities.
