Offer Housing

We are looking for long-term (12 months or more) housing in Massachusetts and New Hampshire for newly arrived refugees. This could include affordable apartments, secondary or vacation homes, accessory dwelling units, and more.

We are open to creative solutions.
Our goal is to find affordable living arrangements for all newly-arriving families. Our hope is to provide families with their own private housing, rented in their own names, giving them independence and autonomy as they rebuild their lives.

It is best for refugees if:

  • Apartments are within walking distance of our IINE offices in Boston, Lowell, or Manchester or close to public transportation.
  • Apartments are NOT in rural settings which make accessing services and employment challenging.

Generally, we are looking for apartments and single-family homes for rent in the following price ranges:

  • 1-bedroom units for no more than $1,100 per month
  • 2-bedroom units for no more than $1,800 per month
  • 3-bedroom units for no more than $2,300 per month*
  • 4-bedroom units for no more than $2,500*

*IINE will only place families with 2-3 working adults or more in these units.
