Change Someone’s Life

Help the members of our communities who are placed in dire straits by the COVID-19 crisis. Their jobs are gone; their access to societal help, such as unemployment benefits, is nonexistent for many reasons. Your gift to the Immigrant Relief Fund will place cash for food and rent in the hands of vulnerable immigrants and give us support to provide the case management that helps them navigate the difficult path to safety.
