PRESS RELEASE - NOVEMBER 18th, 2016

Many of the families and communities we serve are devastated by the outcome of the election. Many more feel marginalized and threatened. The Anhelo Project would like to acknowledge our recipients, supporters, and our communities and remind you that we stand together during this time of uncertainty. Now more than ever we will work harder to continue our mission, of providing post secondary financial resources to the undocumented student population within the State of Illinois.

Although we currently do not provide any support such as counseling, legal or mental health, we highly encourage you to contact any of the organizations listed here during this time of crisis.

We stand together in solidarity.
