Immigrant Families Together General

$81,752 of $20,000 goal

Raised by 697 people in 24 days
Immigrant Families Together 's general fund is intended to fund one-off aid requests from partner entities, such as the International Rescue Committee and individual immigration lawyers. We receive multiple requests each day to assist with acute needs that aren't covered by other groups, such as car seats and diapers for kids who have been released from foster care, and temporary housing stipends for parents who have just been released from detention and have no family in the U.S.

In addition, the general fund will support operating costs to cover emerging needs and infrastructure, including web domain hosting and the service fee for our national legal referral hotline service. NONE of the IFT leadership members are paid. We are NOT a 501(c)3 organization. ALL of your funds will go directly to operational and acute needs expenses.

We will withdraw all donated funds to Julie, the leader/organizer/founder of Immigrant Families Together.


Thank you for your generosity and support.

Dear Generous Donors,

The July 26 reunification deadline imposed by U.S. District Court Judge Dana Sabraw came and went. Hundreds of children remain separated from their parents. And while we rejoice for those who have been released and reunited, they still face immense challenges and have profound needs, none of which are being addressed by the government. That’s where your donations come in.

On Friday, we learned of a woman traveling across the country by bus with her 1-year-old and nothing more than a burner phone and a single sandwich. The baby didn’t even have a change of diapers. Using your donations, our tireless volunteers purchased diapers and other basic supplies, and met her at a stop along the way to give them to her. And last night, thanks to your donations, the baby slept in a crib.

Over the weekend, your donations paid the doctor’s fee and prescriptions for a 9-year-old boy who came out of ICE care with strep throat. We have seen and heard of a number of children who have come out of ICE-related facilities with serious illnesses — and parents who have no funds to seek medical intervention.

Your donations provided housing and advocacy services to a family whose child came across the border unaccompanied during the zero-tolerance policy, and is still in a facility.

Your donations are helping 3-year-old Sofi reunite with her mother and grandmother. Because Sofi was originally separated from her grandmother (who is her legal guardian), the government says the court order does not apply to her. Her mother and grandmother have both been released, yet the government continues to drag its feet with regard to releasing Sofi back to them. Your donations have helped the family pay for some of the costs associated with this process.

It’s so easy to feel helpless in these times, and that anything we do is just a drop in the bucket. But our collective efforts can make an ocean. And your collective efforts are making a huge difference for these families. We could not be more grateful.

With love and light,
Immigrant Families Together
