Event Date: 
Friday, October 23, 2015 - 2:15pm

The numbers of unaccompanied children crossing into the United States are down substantially from the summer of 2014. While it is not certain what the summer of 2015 will bring, there remain children from last summer’s influx who are living within our communities still in need of assistance and access to community resources. There are still families coming across and being welcomed by the border Welcome Centers like the one at Sacred Heart Cathedral. There are women and children being taken by Immigration and Customs Enforcement to for-profit detention centers to await their immigration hearing for asylum. They are our neighbors and they are vulnerable. Many community and faith-based organizations are supporting our neighbors, and could use your help. Below is a list of such organizations with a variety of ways for you to contribute time, money, and resources.
