Things are shifting daily and we want to provide you with the most up to date information. 

“The work is too big for one church or one UCC conference. We need your financial support to Keep Families Together. Help to continue assistance to asylum families who are prohibited by law from working. They need to rent apartments. We need to distribute toothbrushes, travel size toothpaste, shampoo, razors, towels, wash cloths, sleeping mats, coloring books and crayons for kids.”

-Rev. Bill Lyons Conference Minister, Southwest Conference United Church of Christ
