Imagine living in a place that has changed overnight.
Imagine waking up one day to a world that’s shut down and realizing you are now living in the middle of a global pandemic. Imagine losing your job that very day — worrying about how you’ll make your monthly payments, buy your groceries, and keep your family safe from this unknown disease.
Now imagine all of that in a country that doesn’t speak your language. Imagine that in a country where the rules of immigration are difficult — and, for many, impossible — to navigate, so you’re living with undocumented status and have no health insurance or unemployment benefits.
Where would you go? Who could you turn to?
Over the past year, with the generosity of our donors and partners, KIAC pivoted to meet the ever-evolving needs of our immigrant communities – connecting people with Covid information, food, vaccinations, legal & family services and other much needed resources.
In the interest of safety for you and our community, we have cancelled our 2021 fall Dinner & Auction Event. We will very much miss gathering with YOU!
YOUR Passion for this Work Pulls Us Together
During this pandemic, KIAC has stepped up to connect immigrant families in our region with critical resources. In this crisis, we have found opportunities — opportunities to safely provide immigration legal services, expand family support services, and give access to Covid vaccines, information and other vital community resources.
KIAC stepped up for the immigrant community. We need you to step up for KIAC.
The cancellation of this event leaves us with a $50,000 gap in our annual budget. We need your help bridging that gap.
In the first part of September, we’ll be sharing a short video with you —the inside view of how we stayed true to our mission while expanding our reach. And none of it could have happened without your partnership and generous support.
