Reunite Separated Families

I’m outraged.  And you should be too.

I am saddened—and angry—by the suffering of 2,300 asylum-seeking children who have been separated from their parents at our own border.  

Despite President Trump’s executive order, thousands of children remain separated, including 148 children in LIRS’s care who, along with countless other unaccompanied children fleeing never-ending violence in Central America, urgently need transitional foster care. 

$250 can provide clothing for a separated child in foster care for 60 days. 

Your donation today will empower our team to provide much needed hope to these young innocent children, through advocacy, legal protection, shelter, clothing, and trauma counseling.  Together, we can help the world’s most vulnerable to, once again, feel safe and be loved. 

I hope that you will join me in supporting the urgent needs of these young victims of violence, caught in cruel immigration policies.
