Webinar: Immigration Ministries Information Session
In a request sent to the Episcopal Diocese of West Texas last week, the Rt. Rev. David Reed shared information about forty Haitian women and children, expected to be released from detention at any moment and how the diocese established the Emergency Immigration Housing Fund in response to this urgent need. Immigration Ministries is incredibly grateful for the overwhelming support for this request and our ongoing involvement in housing families temporarily and safely upon their release from detention.
In addition to the plight of these Haitian families, there is also a growing need for short-term emergency housing for children and families newly released from two ICE family detention centers in the San Antonio area, due to health and safety concerns caused by the pandemic. As this need grows and changes, the diocesan Immigration Ministries continue to receive questions from congregations and individuals wanting to provide support. To answer these questions and provide a more complete picture of the evolving situation, Immigration Ministries will host an introductory Immigration Ministries Support Information Session via Zoom, on Thursday, July 30 at 6:30 p.m.
This session will outline the current situation and provide updates on Immigration Ministries' mission and needs moving forward. If you have been involved in Immigration Ministries previously, if you want to get involved now, or if you simply want to learn more about this initiative, please join us online for the Immigration Ministries Support Information Session.
