The Interfaith Welcome Coalition has helped thousands of women and children who have traveled a long distance seeking asylum from the violence of their homeland. The work of the IWC requires countless hours from volunteers who provide a friendly welcome to asylum seekers at the bus station and airport; backpacks of supplies for their long journey to family; visitation during their time in detention; education on immigration to groups seeking information; and advocacy on behalf of asylum seekers, refugees and at risk immigrants to lawmakers, government officials and all who have the power to make their journey better. In addition to the many volunteer hours, the continued operation and effectiveness of the IWC depends on donations from people who feel strongly about the injustice of imprisoning mothers and their children seeking asylum and a life free from persecution.

There are three areas of need in funding the Interfaith Welcome Coalition:

Kelly Allen’s vision for our work in the IWC was that we would continue to support efforts that provided a welcome to women and children seeking safety in the United states. The IWC is fulfilling this vision by supporting immigrants as they seek safety in the US as well as providing financial support to groups that advocate for immigrant groups.
