We help support the reunification of families by providing rides, housing, clothing and other essentials once the families have been released. We work closely with local advocacy groups 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.
Nosotros apoyamos la reunificación de las familias que han sido separadas. Proveemos aventones, alojamiento, ropa y otras necesidades para las familias que han sido liberadas. Trabajamos en conjunto con grupos locales de apoyo para atender a las necesidades de las familias, apoyarlas hasta que haya un plan a largo plazo para cada familia y asegurar que todas sean tratadas con respeto y compasión.
THE CHAOS BEHIND DONALD TRUMP’S POLICY OF FAMILY SEPARATION AT THE BORDER

You can help support this child and his family directly.
Help us support families dealing with the same kind of trauma as the family featured in the 60 MINUTES story.
Fredy and Family
As one of the first families MSC helped to reunite, Fredy and his son hold a special place in our hearts. Fredy is a kind and thoughtful man who adores his son. Fredy, his wife, and son left their home country in May and made the dangerous journey to the US looking for refuge. They arrived at the border, but they were detained and separated. The little boy was taken away with no explanation and flown, alone, across the country to Michigan. He was recently reunited with his father. His mother was deported.
To comply with laws, Fredy is not allowed to work. Fredy and his son are living with seven other people in a two-bedroom apartment. This is not a good long term arrangement for a four year old. We would like to help them to get their own studio apartment where dad and son can have a little quiet and get on a schedule. In the area where they live, this will cost about 700.00 a month. No landlord will simply rent them an apartment because our families have no credit history and no source of income. We need to have cash, upfront to pay for everything. We are trying to raise 12,000 for this family. This will be enough for an apartment, deposit, and utilities for one year.
