Hi Ash,

The second 'vous' is because the verb 'se sentir chez soi' (to feel at home) is reflexive and you need the extra pronoun as in :

Je veux que tu puisses te sentir chez toi .

Je veux qu'ils puissent se sentir chez eux ...

The reflexive pronouns are -

me, te, se, nous, vous, se 

Hope this helps!
