Sheltered housing Resele, Sweden

The project safe housing has been a request from the villagers in Resele. Resele is a small village approx. 25 km northwest of Sollefteå which is the central city in the community. Resele is located in the middle of Sweden, a bit from the high coast of the Gulf of Bothnia and is a popular destination for nature lovers.

Many families with children and others are looking for permanent housing in Resele. The idea is based on offering older people sheltered housing and relief from heavy daily activities. At the same time, it is possible for young families to move to the village.

The sheltered housing is located in the center of the village with proximity to grocery store, church, library etc. In a nearby school, food is served to the elderly if they choose not to cook the food themselves. The property also has a former barn that can be converted into an all-activity house.

Many families with foreign descent establish themselves here as well, they learn Swedish and are integrated into Swedish society. Competence is in demand in a number of areas such as in healthcare, electricity supply and forestry.

The purpose of the fundraising foundation is to build and run sheltered housing. The foundation is non-partisan and non-religious. More information is to be found att

There are different alternatives to financing. The shelter housing can e.g. is funded through crowdfunding, which means
that many people together support a project before it is launched or fully developed. The project can receive EU grants
and other grants, which makes the project realistic. However, the project must be pre-financed and grants usually paid in
arrears when costs for purchased services and goods have been reported. Alternative financing could be that an investor pre-finances the project and thus guarantees the project's implementation. So, here are some possible solutions. So,
theoretically, you could get your donation refunded, if you want, when the project is completed and has been put into
