These organisations were deeply preoccupied with housing issues related to the various cultural communities; they wanted to be able to rely on an organization that can offer expertise in the field and serve the needs of their clients in all housing related matters.  R.O.M.E.L’s initial role was to fulfill that mission, by gathering and centralizing all housing- related information  all housing-related information and to consequently diffuse it to its founding organizations.
