Airbnb Details Plan to House 100K Refugees

In the wake of President Donald Trump’s travel ban, hospitality service Airbnb has detailed its ambitious plan to house 100,000 displaced refugees over the course of the next five years. According to an announcement from the company, Airbnb plans to coordinate seven nonprofit organizations in assisting refugees through a new Open Homes program.

“To help people around the world facing displacement, we’ll work with our community of hosts to find not just a place to stay, but also a place to feel connected, respected, and a part of a community again,” the company said in their statement.
