With the situation for asylum seekers at the U.S.-Mexico border becoming harsher every day, we are eager to support and collaborate with organisations working on the ground in any way that we can.
As part of our Settlement programs we provide temporary shelter for recently arrived women and their children, a primary health care clinic, English classes, and a series of workshops for women.
The FCJ Youth Network is a diverse group of newcomer youth that has welcomed over 80 members in the past year. They share experiences, support one another, and mobilize their knowledge to overcome the challenges that they face.
We offer direct services to people who have been trafficked, taking into account the range of supports needed, and walking with survivors through legal processes, immigration procedures, settlement and recovery.
