FREDY and family:

 

As one of the first families MSC helped to reunite, Fredy and his son hold a special place in our hearts.   Fredy is a kind and thoughtful man who adores his son. Fredy, his wife, and son left their home country in May and made the dangerous journey to the US looking for refuge. They arrived at the border, but they were detained and separated. The little boy was taken away with no explanation and flown, alone, across the country to Michigan. He was recently reunited with his father.  His mother was deported.




This family has been through so much, but they are working hard to adjust to life in the United States. The 4 year old boy loves Paw Patrol, Lightening McQueen, and dinosaurs. He loves practicing numbers and colors and is learning some English already. Fredy will start taking ESL classes this winter.




To comply with laws, Fredy is not allowed to work.  Fredy and his son are living with seven other people in a two-bedroom apartment.  This is not a good long term arrangement for a four year old.  We would like to help them to get their own studio apartment where dad and son can have a little quiet and get on a schedule.  In the area where they live, this will cost about 700.00 a month.  No landlord will simply rent them an apartment because our families have no credit history and no source of income.  We need to have cash, upfront to pay for everything.  We are trying to raise 12,000 for this family.  This will be enough for an apartment, deposit, and utilities for one year. 




WHERE WE ARE FROM

We are mainly from Michigan and Ohio but have supporters from across the United States.


HOW THE FUNDS WILL BE USED

Funds raised will provide a safe and structured environment for Fredy to raise his son.  Any extra funds will go toward medical expenses.


HOW WE ARE RELATED TO THE BENEFICIARY

We are not related to this family by blood. We are a community of concerned parents and citizens who don't support the current separation policy and want to do our part to help support a family that separated and seeking asylum.


HOW WILL WE BE HANDLING THE FUNDS

We will withdraw all donated funds to Rosalie, the leader/organizer/founder of Michigan Support Circle. They will then be transferred to the family directly. Expenses to be paid include: Expenses related lodging and medical, if necessary.  Please note that Fredy is represented by the ACLU and that money raised through this GoFundMe Campaign will go directly to Fredy.  The ACLU will not collect or receive any money on Fredy's behalf.
