This year, six refugee families became new Habitat homeowners in Albany. Each family came to the United States after spending years in refugee camps, fleeing terror and violence in the Karen and Karenni states of Burma (Myanmar). They left everything they had known in search of safety, in search of home. Families like these make our community stronger and better. We are honored to have played a small role in their journey. In 2017, Habitat was recognized by the Capital Region Refugee Roundtable for our partnership with Karen and Karenni refugees.
