Supporting Migrants

(updated March 4, 2024)

The most effective ways to help our “new neighbors” migrating from the south are:
  • Donate money to agencies directly working with migrants to obtain permanent housing and jobs.
  • Donate supplies for “Take Care” welcome kits, including clothing, as they arrive in shelters.
  • Sort and pack “Take Care” kits in Wilmette.
  • Donate household items for permanent housing.
  • Sponsor a family or help translate if you’re fluent in Spanish.
