SUPPORT FOR A RECENTLY REUNITED FAMILY

Michigan Support Circle, a division of Immigrant Families Together , is a grassroots organization created to help support the reunification of families by providing rides, housing, clothing and other essentials once the families have been released. We work closely with organizations like Migrant Mother Drivers and Strangers No Longer to ensure the immediate needs of families are met, that they are supported until a long term plan for each family is determined and that they are treated with respect and compassion. We work primarily in Michigan and Ohio but coordinate with organizations in other states to help reconnect and support families.
We are asking for funding to support Ingrid and her son. They left Central America with hopes to seek asylum in the United States. Ingrid and her son were separated when they crossed the border. She was held in detention at the border while he was flown across the country. Recently reunited and connected to family in Michigan, they need our support. To comply with laws, Ingrid is unable to work and, therefore, provide essentials for her son so we are asking for your help. Funds raised will provide food, clothing, transportation, medical costs, housing costs, court fees and other costs associated with supporting a family.
Any funds raised beyond the goal will be used to reunite and support other families affected by immigration policies of the current administration.

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 food, clothing, transportation, medical costs, housing costs, court fees and other costs associated with supporting a family.

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 Julie, the leader/organizer/founder of Immigrant Families Together. They will then be transferred to her attorney or Ingrid. Expenses to be paid include: Expenses related lodging, food, local transportation, cell-phone, and other expenses the family may incur, including but not limited to costs of preparing for court appearances (copies of documents, etc).
