A Bilingual Support Group Connects Immigrant Women to Resources in Taos

  • Local Champion: Taos Immigrant Allies/Sin Frontera
  • Date Funded: March 17, 2023
  • Grant Amount: $8,878

Immigrant women in Taos often lack resources and access to important services because of language barriers in the community. When one resident, a volunteer who has worked with the immigrant community throughout Taos, became aware of this, she hoped to create a support group for women who were seeking solidarity and help. Working with Taos Immigrant Allies, she recognized the need to hire a bilingual support group facilitator who could build trust with immigrant women and make sure they received the services they needed. Funding from the LOR Foundation helped the organization contract two bilingual facilitators, creating a safer community for immigrant women in Taos.

This project was fiscally sponsored by B’nai Shalom Havurah
