Emergency Assistance Fund
“I’m a single mother of two children. I am a refugee. I came to this country and I used to work. I [am currently] unemployed given the current situation. I lost my job. I lost my source of income. I had so many challenges with my two children. We almost lost our home, and now we are threatened to leave at the end of this month.”
Dar Al-Hijrah provides emergency rental assistance as a last resort to those facing eviction. Assistance is given to the most urgent cases up to one time every 24 months. Before completing a Dar Al-Hijrah assistance application, please apply with the county as a first step. This will expedite your case, and help us help you.
