Refugee Tenants

Zehr Rentals has worked extensively with the refugee population of Erie, focusing on meeting the unique needs of the refugees and aiding their transition into American culture. We have leased to refugees from Bhutan, Eritrea, Burma, Somalia, the Congo, Sierra Leone, Iraq, Ukraine, Cuba, and Syria. Our mission is to go “above and beyond” the usual duties of a landlord and provide support, answers, and teaching in response to the unique challenges refugees face, while bridging the cultural differences that are present.

If you have a question about our policies regarding refugee and immigrant tenants, please contact us.
