Swimming Lessons

Merita, as her family calls her, wants to learn how to swim. She is 16 years old and has demonstrated interest in developing new physical abilities. She is the eldest of 4 siblings and is originally from El Salvador.

Merita was reunited with her brothers and mom in February of this year. She is eager to start school, make friends and learn how to swim. Swimming lessons will be such a great opportunity for her to engage with other teens and also feel empowered by developing strength and exercising. The family has been through financial difficulties and an adjustment process and Merita demonstrates her great resilience by expressing her interest to explore swimming lessons. 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.

4 Slice Toaster

Toribia Martinez Arzu is an Asylee from Honduras who fled her homeland with her minor children. Toribia and her children are now living in a shelter located in Brooklyn. Her minor children are currently in the process of applying for derivative asylum and are enrolled in school.

The client would love to get a toaster because she works as a Home Health Aid full time and sells bread on the side. Catholic Charities was able to provide pots, pans, plates, and a microwave recently in order to make her cooking easier in the shelter. It’s important to note that the client is a single mother and her minor children heavily rely on her income. This donation would be so appreciated by Toribia, thank you for your consideration!

When she arrives home from her 10-12 hour shift, she prepares the next day’s meals for her children. Danny loves to play soccer and is quite good at it.

Laptop w/ Sleeve

The family that we are requesting this laptop for arrived in the United States just 2 years ago from Afghanistan. Glen came from a background where he was the top student in his class, but his adjustment to America has been a bit difficult for him. However, he recently had a resurgence to succeed in school in order to find a good job and create a better life for his parents and family.

This computer was selected because it has the greatest amount of RAM to support the workflow of this busy student. This laptop and its cover would help an amazingly resilient family on their way to a brighter future! Thank you! 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.

Water Filter

Hello, my name is Noé. I’m from Guatemala, and I live in Vermont with my family, children and nieces. We are on a farm and do not feel it is safe to drink the water here.

I would appreciate help to buy this filter to filter water for my family. We have been buying bottled water and want to reduce the amount of plastic that goes into the trash. I don't feel safe going to the recycling center, and I want my children to learn there are ways we can reduce this pollution. Thank you very much. God bless you.

This family arrived in the United States just 2 years ago from Afghanistan. Despite this high schooler having to drastically adjust to a foreign environment, her drive to succeed in school is amazing and can be seen from her nearly flawless transcript and recent induction into her high school’s honor society.
