Sponsoring DN, an Asylum Seeker

$3,790 of $15,000 goal

Raised by 72 people in 4 months
The Santa Fe Dreamers Project is seeking sponsors for transgender asylum seekers who are currently being detained.

Jake and I are currently undergoing the vetting  process for sponsorship and are expecting to have an asylum seeker matched with us within a matter of weeks. We will be responsible for their transportation and care for up to a year.

We have big hearts, but we will need help raising the money needed to help get this person on their feet following their release from the detention center.

It’s summertime, and for our family, that means our annual trip to NH to visit friends for a week. This year, Nicole came with us. The only Latina in the house, Nicole could have felt isolated and lonely. But instead, she used her big heart and joyous spirit to join in the fun.

Please donate to/share our GoFundMe. The money goes directly to Nicole, to help pay for her cell phone service, clothing, food, medical needs, and other expenses. She is still going back and forth to NYC and our house, so donations will also help to cover that expense.

Thank you all so much!

No person is illegal.

Everyone should be able to flee from violence, starvation, war, and other trauma.

My home is open to Nicole; my heart is open to all those who seek refuge.

Please — on World Refugee Day, consider donating to this or similar GoFundMe campaigns. We are giving the money directly to those who need it: the refugees.

Thank you.

We attended a tamale-making party yesterday. We made Pride-flag tamales to sell at a local Pride event. All the proceeds are going directly to the asylum seekers. :)

Please do share and/donate. Nicole’s expenses are being covered, but it is a challenge. Many thanks!
