We are a collective of healthcare providers, immigration advocates, social workers, legal providers, and compassionate individuals who have committed themselves to assisting and supporting asylum seekers from Central America.
We provide emergency medical relief and social support to migrant families recently released from Customs & Border Patrol custody at the Texas-Mexico border, as well as to men, womxn, and children recently released from the Karnes and Dilley Detention Centers in San Antonio, Texas. We provide families with humanitarian aid, legal advice, and the necessary items needed to sustain them on their journey to their destination cities.
In addition to providing immediate aid and relief at the border, our collective has been connecting migrant families with networks of resources in their asylum cities. These SSF networks provide necessary wrap-around resources (i.e. legal, medical, mental health, education, housing, nutritional support) in the families’ prospective asylum cities in the United States.
Our goal is to continue developing these networks, so that they will include caseworkers/advocates in each major US city who will directly follow-up with each family arriving from the Mexico border.
We value the health and dignity of all refugee men, women, and children.
We value listening to, caring for, and sharing the stories of the people we serve.
We value the shared dream and vision of pursuing a life free of persecution, discrimination, and violence.
