Call for help for LGBT refugees in San Francisco

Organization for Refuge, Asylum and Migration (ORAM) is beginning a resettlement program helping LGBTI refugees start a new life in the San Francisco Bay Area and are calling for volunteers to help.

The aim of the resettlement program is to offer these refugees a new life in San Francisco and to assist them through the first challenging months, enabling them to thrive in their newly adopted home. Refugees resettled to the U.S. are entitled to work, and therefore a crucial part of the program is to find them employment and affordable housing.

They say:
We have our first refugee arriving in a few weeks and we especially need help finding suitable low-cost accommodation. Please email us at if you think you might be able to help.
