Who We Are

Overview

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.

Who We Are

What We Do​

  • We advocate for the health and dignity of all migrant men, women, and children. We believe that there are many factors that adversely affect the physical and emotional health of migrants such as: socioeconomic background; separation of children; immigration status; limited English proficiency; federal, state, and local policies on access to publicly funded health care; housing; and stigma and marginalization.
  • We respond to the needs as they present themselves and evolve.​​
  • We provide direct emergency relief to people on their journey into the United States.
  • We educate and advocate for humane immigration reform.​
  • We identify and connect with municipalities, organizations, and advocates/allies around the country to provide support for migrant families traveling from the US-Mexico border. ​
