About

Thank you for your donation to Immigrant Families Together!

Immigrant Families Together started in the summer of 2018 to help one mom get out of detention and reunite with her three kids who were sent to New York. Since then, IFT have paid the bonds of over 50 parents detained at the southern US border and continues to help these families.
In December 2018 several kids from NYC participated in a holiday craft market, raising over $1,000 for the Immigrant Families Together General Fund. Interest was so great that we opened this Etsy shop offering some of the kids' hand made crafts as thank you gifts for your donation to Immigrant Families Together.
100% OF THE SALE PRICE GOES TO IMMIGRANT FAMILIES TOGETHER. The kids and their families are covering the cost of the crafts and we currently have a sponsor for all mailing costs.

Immigrant Families Together is a network of Americans committed to rapid response unification of families separated by the 'zero tolerance' policy. We have mobilized to help parents currently detained through the following immediate actions:
* Raising of bond funds through coordinated crowdfunding and individual giving in order to post bond for parents separated from their children at the US/Mexico Border.
* Paying bonds and providing pro bono legal representation to fulfill all legal responsibilities while awaiting trial so that they may be with their children.
* Arranging safe transportation from state of detention to the city where children are currently in foster care.
* When needed, finding longterm housing in the destination city while they await trial.
* Connecting parents in cities with resources in order to sustain them during the process of being unified with their children.
*Working with local organizations and government to expedite the process of achieving full custody of their children while they await trial.
