Update from Rincon Migrant Shelter

Our migrant shelter has been bustling, offering a welcome and necessary respite for asylum seeking families. Volunteers are preparing three nutritious meals a day in the kitchen, children are laughing and running on the playground, parents are able to assure their loved ones far away that they are safe and find the support they need to continue on their journeys.

In the midst of a humanitarian crisis and divisive political rhetoric, we are grateful to be a sanctuary. Thank you for all you've done to make this possible!
