Immigrants and refugees often arrive in our region with little else than the clothes on their back. Financial help from their neighbors would help them to get ahead.


Immigrants find it hard to pay the required fees. A medical exam costs around $100; to apply for U.S. citizenship $725; and for legal permanent residency $1,070, to name a few of the costs. Your donation, of any amount, will help legal immigrants to advance in their life in the U.S.



Refugees must pay back their travel to the U.S. through a loan arrangement, $900. They often scramble to pay it, as well as for basic necessities. For instance, $35 buys hygiene items for one person for six months, $72 a monthly bus pass, and around $200 for a couch. Your donation, of any amount, helps refugees to settle in their new home.
