    We have an apt. above our garage, in a rural but not remote area of SW Montana, USA, and would gladly house a family here. It is a one bedroom, 1 bath, with full kitchen, living room and dining area, and potential for converting 2 large closets into sleeping space. It has beautiful views, lots of outdoor space to enjoy.

    I live in the USA. I don’t know how we are handling refugee’s here but I have a home with 4 extra bedrooms that are available. They are on the 2nd floor and there are 2 bathrooms up there too. There will be no charge for the rooms and I’ll buy the food. I will need at least one English speaking person so I can help get what they need. I have two dogs that are small but very energetic and friendly. Lots of space for resting and being safe.

    • Hi Mickey, thanks a lot for your help and support. I’d recommend to check on or other local initiatives to provide help. All the best, – Thibaud

    Has TV/ Dvd player. and internet access.
