Funded Requests

All of the requests on this page are from specific individuals, families or organizations. One of the core values of HYH is that only the individuals themselves know what they want or need and that it is critical to take the time to ask them. When you fund an Individual Request, you are providing something that not only the individual, family or organization needs but you are also supporting another HYH core value which is that immigrants, migrants and refugees should feel valued, respected and appreciated. Basically, your support is saying, “we love you and the fact that you are here!”

Yamaha Keyboard

Wilder came to the United States as an unaccompanied minor from Guatemala. He reunited with his parents and siblings in Alabama after many years of separation. Wilder has resumed his education in the United States enrolling in ESL/GED classes at the local community college because the local high school refused to enroll him.

Wilder suffers from a condition that limits the motor skills of one arm. In his home of Guatemala, he played the keyboard as therapy for his condition. A keyboard is requested to continue improving his motor skills.

5 Barron's Foreign Language Guide #1

English is a non-phonetic language, which means we do not always say the words as they are written. Even with reading skills, many English language learners are afraid to start speaking because they are not sure how to correctly pronounce new words. This fear of pronunciation can act as a barrier to language acquisition and further isolate children and families as they try to assimilate into their new school or community.

Inglés Para Latinos is an English language tool made specifically for Spanish speakers. It allows the reader to learn practical English phrases in an innovative way. Each page lists the phonetic Spanish spelling next to the English phrase so that Spanish readers of all ages can be confident in their pronunciation. This book would be an extremely useful tool for our clients, and could help empower them to seek out and connect to resources within their communities. Catholic Charities Atlanta works with unaccompanied immigration children, which are children who were not accompanied by their parent or legal guardian at the time they entered the United States. Almost all of our clients are from Central America and speak Spanish, and lack of English skills can be a huge barrier when attempting to integrate into their new communities. Our clients are often eager to learn English, but need tools for doing so.

Printer

A Safe Passages client, Brian, requests a laptop and compatible printer from HYH. He is in the 9th grade at a metro Atlanta high school. Brian has more and more homework assignments that are to be completed online, but the assignments are very hard to read and complete on his phone because the web browser is not mobile friendly.

He is also assigned papers to write and has to work on them in school little by little because he cannot type and print them at home. A laptop and printer would allow Brian to better keep up with his school assignments and help him advance toward his goal of graduating from high school. Unaccompanied children served by Catholic Charities Atlanta are children who cross our borders and have no parent or legal guardian who is available to provide for their care and physical custody. For a limited number of Unaccompanied Children, the U.S. Office of Refugee Resettlement funds home studies and post-release services by social services providers to help ensure children are released into safe placements and to facilitate family and community integration after reunification.
