Interested in Supporting Immigrant Youth?
Tuesday, September 17, 1:30-3:30 p.m. at The 2100 Building at 2100 24th Ave S, Seattle
YMCA Host Homes, Washington Immigrant Solidarity Network (WAISN) and & Kids in Need of Defense are beginning a collaboration alongside the Unaccompanied Immigrant Youth Provider Coalition to recruit and support hosts in the community for unaccompanied immigrant youth as they transition out of custody. These organizations are seeking support from community partners like UUC.
UUC’s Immigrant Justice Team is interested in exploring interest of individuals and families from our congregation to host unaccompanied minors, and to also support host families. At this meeting on September 17, a small group from UUC will learn more about host criteria and outreach strategies so we can determine ways to support these youth. If you are interested in joining others from UUC, contact Pam.
