Families fleeing violence and famine in Central America are being dropped off in San Diego with no resources to reach the next stop in their journey – their families here in the United States. SDOP and our San Diego Rapid Response Network partners have been working to meet their basic needs.
With the San Diego Rapid Response Network, we mobilized to build a shelter that hundreds of volunteers help operate every day. To date, the shelter has served close to 4,000 people — all families with children under the age of 18.
We also joined County Supervisors Greg Cox and Nathan Fletcher in asking the rest of the San Diego County Board of Supervisors to address the public health impacts of asylum seekers being released in our communities. Good news — they agreed to step up.
Your support will be the welcoming hand asylum seekers need. Donate today to provide shelter: https://www.gofundme.com/migrantreliefsd
