We are deeply concerned by multiple crises affecting the most vulnerable communities. Most recently, the treatment of Latin American immigrant families on the Texas border has compelled us to focus our efforts on crisis relief for immigrant children in the Texas Rio Grande Valley. Furthermore, a trail of devastation has been left from natural disasters like the Volcán de Fuego eruption in Guatemala, the earthquakes that shook Mexico City, as well as Hurricane Harvey and Hurricane Maria.
Urban Strategies recognizes that relief endeavors must be comprehensive and consistent. Our impact is maximized and sustained through collaboration with multiple partners, including local churches, experienced organizations, and experts on the field. Juntos Podemos is a crisis relief fund that maximizes impact and serves as an engagement catalyst for concerned individuals, churches, and groups who desire to become immediately involved in crisis relief efforts. Learn more about where we work, our experience in crisis response, and the impact of Juntos Podemos below. To join this endeavor, please go to JuntosPodemos.Charity.org to become involved. For those in need of relief goods, please see the list of distribution sites below.
Why Donate to Juntos Podemos:
Bear one another's burdens, and thereby fulfill the law of Christ.
- Galatians 6:2
On Sunday mornings as a child I would go to church with my family, and we often sang a song whose refrain was “We are called to act with justice. We are called to love tenderly. We are called to serve one another to walk humbly with God.” This lesson has served me well as an adult and rings true in this moment in time.
– Diana N Derige, National Director of Health Initiatives.
“This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you…”
- John 15:12
