With your support, FaithAction staff and volunteers served over 4,000 new immigrants from over 40 countries in 2016. We helped over 2,500 families with food, shelter, housing issues, healthcare, furniture and clothing, and provided provided legal services, language and computer classes, and job readiness assistance to hundreds more. We also provided FaithAction ID cards to over 1,500 immigrants in need of valid form of identification.
Meanwhile, we provided weekly trainings and presentations on immigration and diversity to over 50 faith communities, schools, and social service agencies throughout North Carolina, and connected thousands more in our diverse community through our monthly Stranger to Neighbor events, Out of the Shadows and A Place for Us theater arts productions, multicultural soccer games, and our Downtown Unity Walk and Fast for Families advocacy work.
Our work is simply not possible without the help of our wonderful community partners, local foundations, and caring individuals and faith communities. You are our primary source of funding!
