Hope For The Holidays

The holidays are a time of HOPE and FAITH in the future, and in this spirit Refugee Services of Texas and HeyXorje.com embark on a new year of providing OPPORTUNITY and LIFE-SAVING SUPPORT to displaced persons and survivors of human trafficking.

We are proud to announce that we are now on the path to serving asylum seekers. With the generosity of committed partners like YOU we have raised some of much needed funds to start our Asylum Seeker Services Program which will connect asylum seekers with community resources and provide services and goods including shelter, food, clothing, school enrollment, transportation, health care, mental health services, Know Your Rights presentations, ESL classes and more.

Making this vision a reality for Refugee Services of Texas and those most in need requires YOUR HELP.

Please partner with us in serving asylum seekers in 2020 by donating generously to our HOPE FOR THE HOLIDAYS Fundraising Campaign.

With your support, RST can increase its capacity to welcome asylum seekers and provide SAFETY AND HOPE throughout the daunting process of applying for asylum. PLEASE GIVE NOW.

Your contribution of $10, $25 or $50 dollars goes a long way.

And for your very generous donation of $100 or more, we'll thank you with your choice of our One nation, many roots t-shirt, baseball cap or water bottle.


If you need some added incentives -- here are some suggested levels:

- $50 Provides a "Welcome Bag" to a newly arrived refugee family.

- $84 Helps RST build an Asylum Assistance Case Manager position to provide short-term, comprehensive case management for families seeking asylum in Texas!

 - $100 Provides a night of emergency housing for a survivor of trafficking.

- $250 Provides an opportunity for an RST client to apply for their green card.

- $500 Helps cover costs for a refugee child's special medical procedure.

- $1000 Helps fully furnish an apartment for a newly arrived refugee family.

 Whatever amount you choose to donate, please help RST continue on their mission to help those in need during this holiday season!

You may also choose to make a contribution in a loved one’s name, and it makes for a great holiday gift! We will print a certificate with their name honoring your support. PLEASE MAKE SURE TO SEND US THE NAME AND MAILING ADDRESS OF YOUR LOVED ONE.
