Home Again Program

Home Again Project: Apartment Set-Up Contest

The "Home Again Project" is an opportunity for area schools and organizations to reach out to their classmates and colleagues and pool their resources to furnish and decorate a refugee family’s first American home.

Each group will be responsible for supplying large and small household items (everything from a mop to a couch) and will clean and set-up one apartment for an incoming refugee family.

Each participating organization will be asked to make the most of your school spirit, or organizational culture, to display the required items as well as the home touches. Each organization will be judged in several categories including to Style & Design, Cost Efficiency and Most Improved Apartment, among others.

Represent Your School, Business or Organization

At the end of the competition each group will have the opportunity to give a 4-5 minute presentation on their overall experience including their challenges, key contributors, observations and achievements.

It's a great chance to build community, welcome and learn about Buffalo's newest residents, and to give back in a way that will benefit both the arriving family and Buffalo for years to come.
