We need your help to continue the fight! Nuevo Sendero will support survivors with your generous contribution with grants of $500 to each family to strengthen and empowering us to make rapid responses to a serious crisis.

Nuevo Sendero will also assist survivors with securing safe, affordable transitional housing a crucial step to a survivor’s long-term security.
