Reception center? 

First migrant reception center to open in Athens in May, says minister

Citizens’ Protection Minister Michalis Chrysochoidis said on Tuesday that the first of 30 reception centers that Greece plans to build to house undocumented immigrants will be ready by the end of May.
Chrysochiodis said the opening of the center in Amydgaleza, northern Athens, will be followed in June by the opening of another camp in Attica.
Residents of Amydgaleza have voiced opposition to the construction of the center in their area.
The government unveiled last month plans to build 30 centers around the country to house 1,000 migrants each.
