Since the beginning of 2022 we have been receiving an unprecedented number of immigrant families coming straight from detention centers in Texas. They are arriving without a single dime in their pockets, only with the clothes they are wearing, and no shelter or place to stay. From May to August 3rd, we have assisted over 1,430 individuals, 531 of those children. We need your help!!! We are in dire need of critical items such as baby formula, food, cooking pots, personal hygiene items, and temporary shelter. The most direct way to help the families is to provide some temporary financial assistance through gift cards that they can use until we can assist in their integration to our community. Please donate what you can. We are a registered 501c3 organization with 32 years of work with immigrant families. We will keep providing the wrap-around services and work with partners to address this challenge. Please see the link to hear the story of one of the families we helped with our partners at the Venezuelan Alliance in Charlotte. Thank you!
