Donate to 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. 


 
 

IKEA DONATIONS

We are planning an Ikea trip for two of our families to help them settle in to new living situations.  We hope to provide them with bunk beds and other necessities for two families living together in a small house.  We are looking for donations of IKEA gift cards.  Electronic cards can be made out to MSC and sent to michiganscstaff@gmail.com

Donate to FAMILIES in need

Michigan Support Circle was created to help reunite families. We did not anticipate the amount of support they would need once reunited and trying to adapt to an American life while navigating our country’s ever changing immigration policies. One of our volunteers has generously created a birthday fundraiser to help support our families. MSC is run entirely by volunteers and all of the proceeds from this GoFundMe campaign will go directly to our families.

Sofia is a brave girl. She has gone through so much in her short 13 years.  She was left in the care of her grandparents when she was 6 months old, unable to travel. Finally, 12.5 years later, Sofia began the grueling journey of coming from her home country to the US so that she could live with her parents once again. She needed help due to health problems, so her aunt made the journey with her. After arriving at the border, Sofia was separated from her aunt and detained. Sofia is living in a hospital now and feels very lonely. We are working on reuniting Sofia with her family. Lets get her some things that will make her feel more welcome in this long journey home.  Her Amazon Registry is below.

donate frequent flyer miles

Whether by bringing a parent to a child or bringing separated families to their relatives, flying allows people in crisis to get to the safety of their family members more quickly.  When you register with us, we only ask for your name and contact information.  As needs for miles arise, we contact people on our donor registry with details about how to donate their miles to travelers.  

contribute to amazon wishlists

The Amazon Wishlists below are for the kids of the families separated in the Cursos raids (June 3rd) in Ohio.  One hundred and fourteen parents were detained.  The children of some of these parents were at daycare with no one to bring them home.  Many parents are just getting released now, eight weeks later! These traumatized families need help as they try to heal and wait for court dates.  What we can do from afar is to help make going back to school a bit easier and/or provide them with some new clothes and essential toiletries.
