ASSIST WITH HOUSING
We are currently seeking both temporary and permanent housing for Afghan evacuees. Temporary housing is being used to shelter families immediately on arrival while permanent apartments are secured. We seek temporary housing that is available for at least 30 days and can house at least 4 people. Congregate housing such as hotels, motels are acceptable. Permanent apartments of all sizes are also being sought. All housing is preferably in the Buffalo metro area.
For more information please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
