Hope Smiling Brightly
You can help us welcome our new refugee neighbors to DFW by setting up apartments or helping a family directly.
Donate funds directly through the PayPal Giving page or make in-kind donations for refugees. We need new or gently-used household items as well as personal items (excluding clothes).
There are several ways you can help directly through Action Alliance International. We also invite you to assist families with other needs through Refugee Services of Texas. To do this, you will need to register on their website through their volunteer hub.
We continue to support people in Guatemala through our service provider Fundamaya. Student sponsorships are key to moving families from poverty to self-sufficiency. We also help many people who are food insecure such as the elderly and single-parent families.
As part of the Survive & Thrive Global Development Alliance, we are increasing the availability of resuscitation to manage newborn asphyxia during birth. We provide equipment and help train health care providers in Guatemala.
To integrate into society, it is important for families to have the support of a local family or individual who will help them learn about our culture and assist with the red tape they are sure to encounter. You can be that support by signing up with Refugee Services of Texas.
