Jun 2021. News from the busy resident asylum seeker program:
Vaccinations! As of the end of May, 70% of our families have been vaccinated! Through trust and education, we hope to achieve 100% this summer.
Referrals! Three new referrals came in during the last week of May! Family Liaisons are meeting with the new families.
Jobs! One asylum seeker interviewed and was hired for a job.
Work Permits! Another asylum seeker, being assisted by our partner New Mexico Immigrant Law Center, should be getting a work permit soon.
Housing! Two families are struggling to stay housed. We are looking for options and helping as our budget allows.
Thank you to those at the heart of this work, the creative and dedicated teams that Jessica Corley coordinates: Spanish-speaking Family Liaisons, and the Food, Donations, and Transportation Teams. You are helping over 40 people, post-trauma of migration, survive and acclimate in our community.
