Since February 2022, works have begun to make the building of the new reception center in Boom ready for use. Residents are expected to arrive at the reception center during the week of April 25, 2022. They will mainly be residents of the Mechelen reception center. (Because the reception center in Mechelen closes at the end of April.)

The center will host a diverse group of about 160 residents, consisting of families with children, singles and 20 unaccompanied minors. Residents can stay at the shelter while their asylum procedure is ongoing.

A shelter near you?

Curious about what it is? Who the residents are? Who is on staff? How the center is organized?
