Socks

Kevin is a hardworking migrant farmer who just moved from a farm in Chittenden County to a farm in NY. He spends most of his day outside and works through hot, humid temperatures. Therefore, Kevin needs socks to be comfortable in the heat and humidity.

Kevin has had a tough history, as previous items of his have been stolen. We greatly appreciate any support directed towards him. Thank you!

Laptop 1

This request is for the Ishaqzoi family of 5 people. The family was evacuated from Afghanistan and arrived in the US in August 2021. The father is head of the family and responsible for all expenses.

He is the only one working and keeping up with all finances at home. Thanks to some additional Afghan funding through CCCS, it made it possible for them to rent an apt in Fresh Meadows, NY where he moved with his mother, wife, son (1.5 yrs old), and his sister-in-law. They need two laptops, one for Mr. Ishaqzoi and the other one for his wife who is attending online English classes and searching for higher education.

Laptop

Alba came from Honduras seeking opportunities for a better life. The language barrier has been a challenge for her. She would like to get a laptop in order to learn English and to be able to seek higher education which is greatly assisted by having a computer.

Having a laptop would facilitate many opportunities for her since she graduated High School and it will allow her to seek a college of her preference.

These requests are for the Diakite family which consists of a single father with 15 children. The children arrived in the US on 11/21/2021 as derivative asylum seekers. Ever since their father arrived in the US, he has worked hard to save money to buy their airline tickets and he has finally been able to buy plane tickets for them all and has no savings left.

He could not rent an apartment and the only solution was to go to a shelter where he hopes the state will help him with an apartment for low-income people. Most of the children attend public schools. Two of them want to go to college, and they are going to ESL classes to improve their English. Because the kids do well in school and want to keep up with good academic achievement, they need desktops.

Sofa

Francisco, Esperanza, and their two young daughters migrated from El Salvador, seeking to escape poverty, the constant threat of violence to their lives, and the opportunity to give their daughters a better life. When the family arrived at the border, after weeks of traveling, the family was separated. The daughters were sent to a shelter and spent about a year without being able to see their mom.

Fortunately, this family was able to be reunified last month and are working on getting settled and starting their life as a family. However, the family’s income is very limited and it’s just enough to pay the rent and the bare household necessities. Therefore, we are asking the community to help this family make a home by contributing a gift to ensure that this family has a couch where they can enjoy their time as a family.

Edgar left his home country of Guatemala because there was a hurricane that devastated his hometown. After the hurricane, Edgar said his family was left with nothing. Edgar could no longer attend school because his family faced financial difficulties.

Edgar told his family he wanted to come to the United States to live with his cousin because he wants to finish his studies and eventually send money back to his family. Edgar is adjusting well to his new life but with some difficulties. Edgar and his cousin rent out a room in an apartment. Edgar has noticed that his cousin works very hard in construction and sometimes the pay is not enough to cover all their expenses. Edgar’s cousin wants him to focus on school and not worry about anything else. But for Edgar it is difficult to ignore his cousin’s efforts. Edgar recently said:“I am grateful for my cousin’s help but sometimes I feel like a burden because he has done a lot for me. I want to help but I am too young and not allowed to work. I need to go to school. Maybe in the future, I can pay him back for all he has done to help me and my family.” 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.

Stroller and Infant Car Seat

Victoria moved to the U.S. a few months ago from Brazil. She has a supportive partner and they are living with extended family until they are able to afford their own place.

The Healthy Start care coordinator is helping them with parenting education, resources, and emotional support. Victoria is very young with a history of health issues that could lead to premature labor. She is not eligible for health insurance, so at this time the little bit of money her partner is making is going to pay for prenatal care. This car seat stroller will help them as they don’t have their own transportation.

Stroller and Infant Car Seat

Maria has lived in the U.S. for about three years. She moved to our county a few weeks ago since the father of the baby left her because he did not want the baby.

She is now living with friends that are originally from the same area of Mexico as her. The Healthy Start home visitor has been teaching her about what to expect during the pregnancy, where to go for OB care, and much more. Maria is scared as this is her first pregnancy but has begun a new journey with the committed support of Healthy Start. This car seat stroller combo will help her be mobile as she uses public transportation.
