Migrant Response and Overnight Shelter Program
Catholic Charities of Archdiocese of San Antonio addresses the current border crisis and helps the asylum seekers traveling through San Antonio upon release by US government to travel to their sponsor family within the United States. Their Migrant Response and Overnight Shelter Program helps migrant families that are coming directly from Border Patrol detention facilities and are legally allowed to travel within the US to appear at assigned court dates for asylum hearings throughout the country by purchasing them bus tickets, providing lodging, and meeting their basic needs.
