Our Mission:

Reuniting Families.

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. 

Immigrant Mom Reunited with Daughter after One Year

Around 1 pm today, Aug. 18, carrying sunflowers and a purple teddy bear, a mom was able to hug her daughter at the airport.  This was the first time this mom had touched her daughter in over a year. Can you imagine not being able to touch your child for a year?

Mom and daughter had crossed the border separately and the daughter, coming with other family members, was detained for over three months (family members were held at separate facilities states apart).  


We are ecstatic for our mom and her daughter. They are enjoying their first evening together now. The mom was making homemade soup, and her daughter was particularly excited to enjoy a cake donated by one of our volunteers. It is truly taking a village to support the families who have faced indescribable horrors and indignities — and their ordeal is far from over.

We are in it for the long haul. Hope you can be, too. Thank you.

Our Mission

We are a grassroots organization based in Michigan.  Our goal is to quickly respond to the changing requirements of the government in order to support detained and separated immigrant families. Working with other organizations, we fight for the reunification of families while providing immediate support and emergency aid to those recently released from detention centers. We believe that while all people ought to work for the reunification of families forced to separate, it is the particular responsibility of citizens to work to end the inhumane treatment of families seeking shelter here.
