Immigrants are at an increased risk of becoming homeless.  The aim of the Moniheli association's Katto program is to prevent homelessness.

Immigrants are at a higher risk of becoming homeless and overcrowding is common, especially in families with children. People face prejudice and discrimination in the rental housing market.

The aim of the Moniheli association's Katto program is to prevent homelessness.

We provide support in finding housing in many languages, share information about housing, organise training for professionals and work on advocacy.

Housing search and counselling

Katto program helps with housing search and housing problems in Finnish, English and Arabic. You can reach us by phone, email and through various social media channels.

You can invite us to discuss housing in an integration training group, Finnish language course or peer group. The housing information takes about 1-1,5h.

You can also invite us to hold a pop-up advice point. We regularly visit educational institutions and low-threshold premises of organisations to help you fill in housing applications.
