Located in the former building of the Dutch Ministry of Social Affairs and Employment, SOZA offers an innovative form of co-housing for status holders (refugees with a permit to stay and work in the Netherlands), students, and young professionals. It also offers room for sports, social assistance, and social enterprises.
The aim is to create a unique environment where social initiatives, businesses and residents connect and create a vibrant community. Combined with tailored social support, this puts status holders in a good position to build their new lives and participate in The Hague’s society.
The SOZA building is an innovative public-private collaboration between the municipality of The Hague and VORM and MRP Development, two private real estate development companies.
