Requests - Organizations & Individual

Please consider scrolling to the bottom of the list (last page) to 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

If you would like to fund multiple requests, we suggest that you add up the total and make a general donation of that amount. You can list the requests you are funding in the comment section when you check out. Thx!

Marlen is a mother from Honduras who is living with her children in Queens. Her daughter, Kimberly, joined her in the U.S. as an unaccompanied minor after she was threatened by gangs in her home town in Honduras and fled for her safety.

She is receiving social services from Catholic Charities in New York as she adjusts and maneuvers the justice system. Marlen has another child, a younger son, that is also living with them in their small apartment in Queens. Marlen recently lost her job when the restaurant she was working for closed due to the ongoing pandemic and is struggling to make ends meet to support her children. She is actively looking for work, but any help purchasing items her children need now would be appreciated at this time. As the school year approaches, Marlen especially needs help getting the required school supplies for her two children.

Micaela and Lucia are two teenage sisters whom recently moved to the U.S and live with their aunt who has become their primary caregiver. Micaela and Lucia were raised by their single father who is disabled and were abandoned by their mother. Their home Country faces extreme poverty and violence;

therefore, the family decided it was best for Micaela and Lucia to leave their home Country and their disabled father in order to go live with their aunt seeking better opportunities. Their aunt has accepted to take in her two nieces as her own and provide care for them. This is now a family of 8 residing in the Atlanta area. The aunt continues to work hard in order to be able to provide not just for her children but also for her two nieces. When Micaela and Lucia were asked by their caseworker if there was something they wished they had or if there was anything they needed, they stated that it would really help to have hygiene items, clothing and shoes. As these two sisters continue to adapt to a new Country, a new culture, and new language away from their father and the aunt has recently transitioned and adapting to a bigger family, it would mean the world for them to get a little bit of help with back to school clothing, shoes and hygiene items. 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.

Ayse and her daughters, Filiz and Handan, recently joined her husband, Ahmed, in the U.S. as asylees from Turkey. Ahmed has been living in the U.S.

for about two years now and has been preparing for his family to join him. He is overjoyed to be reunited with his wife and daughters. Ayse enrolled the girls in school when they arrived in New York this April, and they are now in summer school, catching up for lost time during the school year and taking extra English classes so they are ready for the new school year in the Fall. Their elder daughter, Filiz is taking summer school classes online and has been borrowing her father’s work computer and walking over a mile to the public library to do her school work. Ayse is also trying to apply for jobs online. A tablet would be such a necessary and helpful gift for this family, as it would allow Filiz to focus on her studies and access her classes more easily and let Ayse job search and learn English online. In the increasingly online world following the ongoing pandemic, technology and access to the internet are no longer a luxury, but a necessity. Ayse and Ahmed will be so grateful for any help with a device that would allow the family easier access to the internet. Thank you for your consideration.

2 Pairs Black Pants

Hi, my name is Don Aluino. I’m fairly new to this farm in Caledonia County Vermont and don’t own many things. These work pants would be very helpful for my long work days.

The sweaters and coats would also come in handy when the weather starts to cool. I would also appreciate some casual shoes and work boots. The shoes I own right now are not very adequate for my work and are pretty worn out. Any and all help is appreciated! Thanks!
