Housing Maintenance for Newcomers

As refugee housing providers, we understand the challenges newcomers face in finding and retaining stable housing. Navigating maintenance, budgeting for repairs, communicating with landlords, and accessing local resources can all be overwhelming. This guide aims to support both newcomers and their service providers by providing guidance on home maintenance for successful integration. 

Note: while the language in this toolkit focuses on newcomers who are renters, it may also be useful to those who own their homes. Additionally, the term “landlord” in this toolkit refers to both landlords and property managers, who often manage relationships with tenants on landlords’ behalf.
