We Need Your Support – Donate Today!
With your support, FaithAction staff and volunteers served over 4,000 new immigrants from over 40 countries over the last year. We helped over 2,000 families with food, housing, and healthcare issues, as well as legal services, language and computer classes, job readiness services, and safe space and accompaniment to immigrant dv victims and members of the LGBTQ community. We also provided FaithAction ID cards to over 2,000 people, providing much greater dignity and access for our neighbors in need.
Meanwhile, we provided weekly trainings and presentations on immigration and diversity to over 60 faith communities, schools, and social service agencies throughout North Carolina, and connected thousands more in our diverse community through our quarterly Stranger to Neighbor events, and our annual Downtown Unity Walk for Immigration Reform and Multicultural Thanksgiving.
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! Your support makes a significant difference in the lives of our newest neighbors, and builds bridges of hope and understanding across our diverse community – turning strangers into neighbors!
