Familia Delgado

When the Centeno-Delgado Family arrived in Philadelphia over a year ago, the Kol Tzedek community mobilized to raise funds to support them. Joined by neighbors from West Philly and beyond, the first phase of fundraising gathered more than $100,000 to support this 7-person family covering a year of rent, food, transportation, clothes, legal expenses, significant medical bills, etc. etc.

These funds have carried the family to settle into the neighborhood, getting the children set for school and supporting them as they adjust to living in the United States after their long and arduous journey to find a safe place for their family. (For more on the history of how they landed here, see the original post.)

In this moment of coronavirus pandemic, the Centeno-Delgado Family, like all of us, is struggling to get through the shutdown without access to many of the supports they have built since arriving here. As they continue to await asylum proceedings, they remain barred from working. Unable to work, they do not qualify for the relief that is offered by federal government to many others.

If you are looking for a place to donate some or all of your coronavirus stimulus check, or simply thinking of ways to support local families in need through this difficult period, please give as generously as you can.

There is a major donor who has offered to match the first $5,000 we raise now. If 10 people gave $500 or if 50 people gave $100 people -- that would be transformative for this family. Please donate today.

Thank you so much for your contribution! We sincerely appreciate it.
