Besides investing in community development with a focus on water, housing, goats, and education in the rural of Haiti, Hope and Change for Haiti-HnC also advocates for women and immigrant rights and promote cultural awareness in Rhode Island.

In our advocacy role for immigrant’s right, we provide also financial assistance to some families to helping them to cope with their immigration status issues. Currently, we are working with two families who are dealing with financial hardship. For the security and confidentiality purposes, we cannot expose the name of these families.

However, these families face with great difficulties to cover legal fees for attorneys in order to complete the filing papers to adjust their status.

The first family needs a total of $ 2, 700.00.  They have $ 1,550 and they are looking for a remaining of $ 1150. Hope and Change for Haiti has already provided financial support for this family, unfortunately we are unable to afford the full amount needed.

The second family has been struggling with high cost for immigration attorney’s fees since 2015. As the head of the household is actually unable to work due to his status, it is very hard for them to manage the expenses of the living of the family. We hope to raise enough to provide $1,200.00 assistance to that family to help with legal fees.

As our resources are very limited, we humbly solicit your support to these families. Our goal is to raise $ 2,350.00 to help both families. Please click to donate to help these families. You can give $5, $10, $20, $100, $500, or any other amount.

Thank you for your continued support!
