Ever and Family



Ever, his wife Gladys, their three year old son, and infant daughter were separated when they came to the united states.  Father and son were reunited here in Michigan and then were able to travel to Houston where the whole family was reunited.  They settled in Houston in a one-bedroom apartment that they share with extended family. 

We reconnected with Ever and his family when we found out that they had run out of infant formula and that their pro bono lawyer was paying for their travel to legal and medical appointments.  We have since been able to help them with the $2,500 that donors had contributed and an Amazon registry.  This money has gone a long way and Ever and Gladys are deeply grateful for all of the help.  I cannot tell you how many thank you texts and photos they send!

Their son is suffering immense, and fairly predictable, repercussions from the traumatic separation trauma that he experienced.  When he was first reunited with his mom, he didn’t recognize her and tried to run away.  He is doing so much better now, but he desperately needs to be on a schedule.  Seven hundred and fifty dollars a month is enough for this family to rent a 1 bedroom apartment of their own.   We are hoping to raise 12,000 dollars to help cover rent, utilities and deposit for this lovely family. 


WHERE WE ARE FROM

We are mainly from Michigan and Ohio but have supporters from across the United States.


HOW THE FUNDS WILL BE USED

Funds raised will provide deposit on an apartment, rent, and utilities.  Anything extra will go toward medical expenses. 


HOW WE ARE RELATED TO THE BENEFICIARY

We are not related to this family by blood. We are a community of concerned parents and citizens who don't support the current separation policy and want to do our part to help support a family that separated and seeking asylum.


HOW WILL WE BE HANDLING THE FUNDS

We will withdraw all donated funds to Rosalie, the leader/organizer/founder of Michigan Support Circle. They will then be transferred to the family directly. Expenses to be paid include: primarily lodging.  Any extra funds will go toward medical expenses.
