Our church ministers to many undocumented people from Central America. Many of them work in agriculture. These families and their children live below the poverty level. The limited formal education they have and not speaking English compound their difficult situations. The fear of deportation overshadows all aspects of their lives. The pandemic has negatively affected the undocumented community. They have suffered the loss of their jobs. unlike others, they are not eligible for government assistance given their undocumented status.
We have noted a great need for education in various aspects of their everyday life. We want to address these needs as part of our church’s outreach program. We are currently providing families food and clothes donations, but we want to impact the new generation with the light of the Gospel
