While hosts are the primary contact for guests needs in Welcome Housing, host assistants are introduced primarily for the sake of providing extra welcoming and another local connection. Resettlement is not just about providing resources but about rebuilding relationships. Host assistants partner with a host and a single family for the duration of their stay in Welcome Housing (about 3 weeks).
During that time people typically connect through:
- having tea together
- exploring the city
- sharing a meal
- playing games or sports
