Catholic Charities Aids Refugee / Immigrant Women and Children in Texas

Congressional Delegation Women and Children Refugee Press Release.

“Increasing numbers of unaccompanied immigrant women and children from Central America have flooded across the Texas-Mexico border in recent weeks.  These refugees are fleeing violence and poverty in the homeland and seek a life in the United States.  They come with little more than the clothes on their backs and hopes for a future.

While governmental officials sort out this crisis, Catholic Charities agencies across the state have stepped up to provide clothing, food, water, medicine, legal services, and compassion to these vulnerable populations.”
– Texas Catholic Conference Website

 

Diocese all over Texas are undertaking to help the influx of immigrant children. If you’d like to learn how you can help and/ or make donations, visit the Catholic Charities of the Texas Panhandle Website and click on the list file of ways to help at the bottom. Different localities in Texas have varying needs. Some ask for personal and food items, and some tell you how you can become a foster parent for these children who are now in the U.S. and homeless.
