Update: Dilley Pro Bono Project

Dilley Pro BonoReporting from Texas… while the Notre Dame football team prepares for their challenge, a group of Notre Dame Law School students is working hard as well in Texas. They are at the border with attorneys from Monterrosa Law Group, LLC working with the Dilley Pro Bono Project. Below a share by Jesusa Rivera, a community advocate on the trip:
“100 new mothers and their children arrived the other day… hearing the devastating stories these mother’s carry in their heart… Most mothers and children, if not all, are sick with a cold and cough.
Our work here involves intake, assisting and prepping them to begin the process of asylum. Great team work with everyone who is here… yesterday our day started at 7:30 am and ended at 10pm. Most of the SB volunteers (ND students) have already been up for hours, researching and preparing for what today will bring.
Keep these mother’s and their children in your prayers, especially a young little boy who has been very sick…
Thank you to those who donated to the Dilley Project. If you haven’t already, please donate following the link below or take a donation to La Casa De Amistad in South Bend.”

They are working hard, making a difference, and need our thoughts and prayers as they take on this challenging work.

Giving Tuesday – Support Immigrant Families

#GivingTuesday OrnamentGiving Tuesday is a national day of giving and this year La Casa de Amistad would like to ask for your support for our families. This is an important way you can support families that can’t afford our modest fees. We never turn away a family so these scholarship dollars ensure all our families and youth can participate in programming.

We made it simple this year and we are using Facebook to give, and they are matching the first $7 Million that is given. So set your alarm because their matching starts at 8AM Eastern Time… our goal this year is $9,000 so lets see how fast we can hit that goal!  Here is the direct link to give: https://www.facebook.com/donate/250032725685781/

Maybe donate some of the money you saved shopping during Black Friday, or Cyber Monday. You can give online with the link above, or feel free to mail us a check as well or use our Paypal Link if you are not on Facebook. We also can take a credit card over the phone at 574.233.2120.
#GivingTuesday Banner 2Can’t donate? At La Casa we also always need volunteers who can give their time, and other items and in-kind donations that we need around in our programs. Please check out our NEEDS LIST or go to our VOLUNTEER page and sign up to get involved.

Thank you everyone for your support, any size gift is great and will help a family in need. Thank you for helping our children and families achieve their Sueños!
