Afghanistan Refugees Housing Philadelphia Compound Impact

Housing refugees here to fuel the gospel everywhere

We provide safe, sustainable housing for refugee families that have fled persecution or war and cannot return home.

Our model is sustainable enough that we generate a net profit from the work that we do. And 100% of that profit is used to support international missions, clean water, and hunger relief all over the world.

How Does it Work?

1

Rehab homes

100% of the money given to Compound Impact is used to purchase and rehabilitate distressed residential properties at a significantly discounted price. When we’re all finished, these run down homes are as good as new.

2

Serve familIES

Each property is made available to incoming refugee families who have fled their country due to persecution or war. These families  have major barriers to safe, stable housing upon arrival to the US. Our homes help meet that need.

3

 Fuel the gospel

Each property generates a growing profit over time. And 100% of all profits are channeled into some of the most effective missions and relief organizations working around the world. Forever. Like a sort of impact engine.

Serving families

We work to provide safe and stable housing for refugee families who face multiple barriers upon reaching Philadelphia. We make all of our homes available for refugee families.

Barriers to Housing

Refugee families are not able to meet the typical requirements that landlords require for renters, including a U.S. credit history and a verifiable income.

Serving Refugees

We make all of our homes available for refugee families. If a family decides to move out for any reason, a new family will be matched.

Indefinitely Sustainable

Our partner resettlement agencies help support our families for the first 3-6 months. After that point, most families are financially self-sustainable.

Our Partners

We partner with several resettlement agencies in order to best serve the refugee families we work with. Each family is assigned a caseworker from one of the agencies below before being matched to one of our available homes.

Frequently ASked Questions

Are donations tax deductible?

Compound Impact is in the process of applying for 501(c)(3) status which is required for donations to be considered tax deductible. If you want to make a quick and easy donation, you can give via our GoFundMe page

However, if you are planning on a larger gift or are unable to give without a tax deduction, we have a temporary solution in place until we are granted 501(c)(3) status. Contact us for more information!

How much are your admin costs?

All of our staff are self-supported, so every single cent you donate goes directly to funding new impact homes. We are passionate about efficiency and effectiveness, so we keep admin costs out of it!

Do you focus on a specific people or cultural group?

We equally accept refugee families from any nation or culture into our homes. While there are specific areas of the city where people from specific cultural backgrounds tend to settle, we do not preferentially choose one family over another based on cultural background.

How long do families stay in each home?

Each refugee family is welcome to stay as long as they want once they are placed. Based on prior experience, families often prefer to stay 1-2 years before moving in order to move closer to their friends, community, or jobs. When a family leaves, a new refugee family will be matched to the home.
