The Healthy Entry for Asylees Lives (HEAL) fund supports New Mexico non-profits by providing vital flexible assistance to support vulnerable children, families, and adults lawfully seeking asylum in the United States.

Adults, families, and children entering the United States fleeing from persecution and violence in their home country need adequate legal representation, language interpretation, medical services, communication, transportation to a safe and secure shelter, and support for a successful transition to a healthy productive life. Local trusted non-profits, when provided adequate support and capacity, are the most effective deliverers of humanitarian assistance to asylees.

This effort is a public-private partnership that is leveraging local philanthropic dollars, state funding, and federal relief funds to have the greatest impact in New Mexico.

Thank you for supporting a safe, healthy entry during the pandemic for Asylee families and children.
