We provide help to individuals and families adversely impacted by immigration enforcement through assistance and referral to other agencies to address the need for housing, food, transportation, information, and other goods and services, in an effort to provide temporary relief and strengthen healthy family connections.

During Covid, we are also providing emergency rent and utilities assistance, as well as food deliveries, for immigrant families with Covid.
