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!”

Looking for a unique gift for someone?
Fund a request and we will send him/her a little gift box with a description of the request inside and any personal message you would like us to add.
When you check out just check off the box that it is a gift and leave the address to send it to in the comment section.

Work Boots

I am happy to share with you that I recently received my high school diploma from the State of Vermont. I took the courses online in English and I passed all of the exams. I have been working at the same Dairy farm for the last 5 years and I am also paying for my daughter’s college in Mexico.

She will be graduating next June with a major in Business Administration. I have not seen my daughter in 5 years and I am very happy that she is coming to visit me this summer for a month. Since I do not have a car and work an average of 68 hours a week, I would very much appreciate it if someone could donate the pair of tennis shoes listed above so that I can welcome her with a nice surprise. I also want you to know that I will be taking a class through the Community College of Vermont on Bookkeeping and another course offered by a Wisconsin Institution on Leadership and Conflict Resolutions in Dairy Farms. When I arrived in Vermont 5 years ago, I didn’t speak the language and now I am on track to getting my English certification as well. Finally, I am asking for an iPad that will help me and my fellow housemates, whom I am encouraging to take online classes, to further our education. There are no words to describe the impact that these generous donations would have on me and may god bless you all with health and abundance.

Medical Bill

***Thank you to generous donor #1 who reduced the bill by $500.00!" ***Thank you to generous donor #2 who reduced the bill by $500.00!" You also can make a partial payment towards this bill by making a general donation and noting in the comments that it should be applied to Carlo's medical bill. Carlos, who is 45 years old, works 10-12 hours a day 6 days a week at a farm in Addison County, VT. On Saturday 6/6/2020 he injured his foot.

The ex-ray showed a fracture that required surgery. He continued to work even after the fracture but had surgery on Wednesday 6/10 at Porter Hospital in Middlebury, VT. Carlos, a Mexican citizen, is in America to earn money to better support his family in Mexico which consists of his aging parents, wife and son who has muscular dystrophy. Carlos pays for his son's bi-weekly medical visits with a specialist. Carlos does not qualify for any medical insurance plan and does not receive medical insurance through his work. He cannot claim relatives in Mexico as dependents for purposes of financial assistance through the hospital. He has incurred medical bills amounting to tens of thousands of dollars. Making payments on this bill will severely inhibit his ability to continue to provide for his family. Carlos would appreciate any support to help him pay this bill.

Attorney Fees

Stimulus Check Donation? This client came to the US during the summer when the federal government was separating parents from their children at the border. The children were reunited with their mother but are now struggling to pay legal fees related to their asylum case.

The client's hours at work have been reduced due to the current pandemic. The family owes their attorney money and would be very grateful for any assistance in paying this fee. She has until July to pay the money according to the payment plan arranged with the attorney. 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.
