Requests - Organizations & Individual

Requests are listed by most current at the top. Please consider scrolling to the bottom of the list to fund requests that have been waiting the longest. Thank You! 

All of the requests on this page are from specific individuals, families or organizations. One of the core values of HYH is: 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 a 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: 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!”

Do you want to donate to an item but not the whole amount?

Just make a general donation for whatever amount you would like to and in the comment section refer to the particular request you would like it to go towards (Ex. Men's Muck Boots Size 7). We will reduce the amount requested by the amount of your donation!

5 Barron's Foreign Language Guide #3

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.

Diapers Size 4

“My four-month old baby, Franco, is a very big baby. At birth, he weighed over nine pounds! He has gone through the store of diapers we had for him very quickly as he is growing very fast.

Because of this, we are in need of more diapers that fit his size. My husband, myself, and baby Franco would be very grateful for this help.”

Baby Snowsuit

“I had my first baby about four months ago. His name is Franco, and my husband and I are so thankful for him. We have been working very hard to provide him with everything he needs to be happy and healthy.

This is his first winter and he does not have a snowsuit appropriate enough for outside wear in a New Hampshire winter. We would really appreciate a baby bunting so that he can go outside and be as warm and dry as possible. Thank you.”

Laptop

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.

Laptop and Sleeve

This teenage boy is a very motivated student but who has trouble completing homework that requires computer access because his family does not have a computer. This laptop would help empower a very bright young man and his family. Catholic Charities Atlanta serves refugee and immigrant families during their first few years in the United States.

Many of the families we serve come from Southeast Asia, the Middle East, Central-East Africa, and Central America.

3 Wheel Mobility Scooter

I am a single refugee mom of 3 children from the Democratic Republic of the Congo. When I was young, I contracted Polio and lost the use of my left leg. Right now, I get around with the combination of a leg brace I have altered to pick up my leg when I walk and a wheelchair.

My 9- year old daughter has started school and was accepted to an afterschool program that helps her with homework and provides additional English class. The bus does not provide transportation home from this program so I have been using my wheelchair to go to school and pick her up. It is a long distance to use a regular wheelchair, the streets are steep, and the concrete is uneven. It is very very difficult to get back and forth. Removing my daughter from this program is not an option because I want her to learn as much as she can. An electric mobility chair would allow me to make the journey to pick up my daughter in a much safer and easier way. Thank you to a generous donor for reducing this request amount by $100.00!

Webster’s Basic English Spanish Dictionary 5 copies #1

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 face a lot of challenges when enrolling in school in the United States due to language and other barriers. Our clients are often eager to learn English, but need tools for doing so.

Having an English-Spanish dictionary would help as they transition to the school system and begin learning English.
