Children and families arriving at the U.S. border to ask for protection is not new and is not unexpected. But this year we have seen a large increase in children arriving at the U.S.-Mexico border.

Children with legal representation are 5X more likely to gain U.S. protection. Children with access to culturally sensitive social and language services are more likely to thrive.

And this is why Ayuda’s work is so critical.

This summer YOU have the unique opportunity to help fundraise for Ayuda and help immigrant children access the holistic services they need.
