Thousands of children are fleeing their home countries of El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras due to the lack of economic opportunity and threats to the welfare of their families. For parents, sending their children on this life-threatening journey to the U.S. is viewed as the last remaining option to secure their safety. By the end of September, officials are predicting that up to 90,000 children will have crossed the U.S. border in 2014.
Catholic Charities across the state of Texas have not lost sight of the fact that these children are young, scared and desperate. Now, more than ever, they need and deserve our protection and support and we have risen to the call to action to care for these children, but we cannot do the work without supporters like you.
