On January 27th, President Trump signed an executive order that effectively suspended refugee resettlement and restricted people of seven different nationalities from entry to the United States. Although there have been numerous court challenges to the order across the United States, our focus is on supporting those immigrants already in our communities.
For more than 10 years, Somali Youth and Family Club (SYFC) has served refugee families from four of the seven nationalities banned by the Trump administration – Somalis, Sudanese, Iraqis, and Syrians. SYFC assists these families with housing, education, and social services in a culturally and linguistically appropriate way. Our agency has helped families and youth acclimate to their new home environment for over a decade, and you can help us grow our services. We are currently seeking support to educate our community members about their rights and connect them to existing legal resources.
The diversity of the United States is one of its most compelling assets. Let’s come together now to show our refugee and immigrant neighbors that they are welcome. Your donation will directly help refugee families and youth to thrive in King County.
It is a universal wish to ask for our sick to be cured and our traveled beloved family member to come back home safe.
