Conglomerate Thread of Charities/Other Ways to Help Refugees

I have stuff all over the place &want to bring it together. Even my Giant Thread of WAYS TO MITIGATE the #FakeTrumpEmergency has lots of political action-on-the-wall & non-immigrant specific items, which is great, but.
1. Annunciation House

This charity in El Paso gives shelter, food, clothing, hygiene products, bus tickets, etc., to 1000s of refugee families released by CBP, to help get them over the next few days and then on to family they have in the United States.
2. Borderland Rainbow Center

Also El Paso based, @BRainbowCenter, assists the thousands of immigrants dumped on the bus station's doorstep with no food, money, clothing or anywhere to stay. They have NEEDS!

@BRainbowCenter 3. The Last Mile AZ

Helps provide transportation to the sponsor that's crucial to getting these families settled in their new lives.

There's currently NO FORMAL PROCESS to aid asylum seekers in doing this.
@BRainbowCenter 4. Catholic Charities of Rio Grande Valley

They also have a shelter they run in Corpus Christi, and accept donations in kind, via amazon wishlist or in person.

Wishlist: amazon.com/gp/registry/wi…

(If you have prime: FREE SHIPPING!)
@BRainbowCenter 5. Casas Alitas, Tucson

They have migrant women and children they serve and gratefully accept monetary donations:

And donations in kind, which would need to be dropped off in person (address at bottom):
@BRainbowCenter 6. Lutheran Social Services of the Southwest

Recently sent out a request for those willing to sponsor refugee families for 1-3 days. They're also looking for other congregations to help provide food, clothing and backpacks. Or you can donate money.
@BRainbowCenter 7. Border Angels

Here, aiding refugees on the Mexican side of the border, in Tijuana, who are overflowing from the shelters. Links to Target & Walmart wishlists for clothes, blankets & linens, feminine & baby products. There's also a gofundme.

@BRainbowCenter 8. RAICES Texas

"RAICES is the largest immigration legal services non-profit in Texas, focusing on under-served immigrant children, families and refugees."

Because, as we know now, in immigration court, there is no guaranteed right to counsel.
@BRainbowCenter 9. Human Rights Initiative

"Human Rights Initiative of North Texas, Inc. provides legal & social services to vulnerable asylum-seekers and immigrants."

They have in kind donation drives, but also appreciate cash donations:

KIND tries to provide every child in immigration court with quality representation, through the national pro bono network of nearly 40,000 KIND-trained attorneys, paralegals and law students they've created.

@BRainbowCenter @HRIonline @axidentaliberal @ImmJusticeNOW @Alyssa_Milano @ifindkarma @TrinityResists @lfkraus @jomareewade @TrisResists @TheLoyalO @FlorenceProject 12. Otay Mesa Detention Resistance

Community members provide support and honor the inherent dignity and humanity of the detainees through letters, phone calls and providing travel packs for those released. Many additional ways to contribute:

@BRainbowCenter @HRIonline @axidentaliberal @ImmJusticeNOW @Alyssa_Milano @ifindkarma @TrinityResists @lfkraus @jomareewade @TrisResists @TheLoyalO @FlorenceProject 13. San Diego Rapid Response Network

One of their Emergency Global Actions is right here on our border: they're "offering financial and communications support, as well as assisting families with legal representation, case management and reunification."
