The project

Created on October 07, 2014 by Josefa Foundation

The Josefa Foundation has given itself the goal of contributing to lasting and fair social inclusion through housing, as well as the integral development of refugees, who are made vulnerable by their forced migration.

Our Reception House, “Josefa”, will be a beautiful, lasting and convivial habitat: it will be located in a Brussels commune where the public, health and social environment will encourage the inclusion of beneficiaries without jeopardizing the quality of life of the communities around it. Therefore, the Josefa Foundation will house beneficiaries who, accompanied by relevant social bodies, have committed themselves to a socially and economically-oriented project aimed at ensuring their inclusion in the community.

In addition, the Josefa Foundation commits itself to welcoming the human person in all his/her dimensions (physical, psychological and spiritual) and respecting the personal convictions of each.

Finally, the Josefa Foundation will encourage, in its research centre, political thinking on migration, housing and inclusion.
