Help Recently Reunited Families
One World One Love is pleased to announce a new program to assist immigrant families who were separated at the border. These families have recently been reunited but are unable to work while awaiting their asylum trials. 1W1L is seeking anyone interested in making a difference in the lives of these families. Spanish language skills are an excellent bonus!
Intergenerational Literacy and Enrichment Program
One World One Love runs a weekly program for children and adults that consists of ESL classes, homework help and school tutoring, followed by a Music, Art or Yoga/Meditation class for the family to participate in together. This program helps the families to become self-sufficient, while building community, supporting quality family time and giving these families an opportunity to relax, heal and feel joy.
Family Friends Program
Resettling in a new culture with few resources can be extremely challenging. Our Family Friends program matches a group of people with one family who has resettled in NJ. The group provides support in the form of companionship and friendship, helping to navigate their new lives for the first year of resettlement.
Have a community, organization, church, synagogue, temple, school, business or friends that want to help refugees? Be a point person for collecting donations within your community for a specific family. When we get a request for items, we’ll send you the list.
Basic Needs Response Team
When we receive word from the International Rescue Committee that a new family has been approved for relocation in New Jersey, our organization prepares all basic needs for the family. This includes collecting donated items, cleaning and setting up their apartment with furniture, home items and food. The Basic Needs Team is often the first group to welcome the family when they arrive in their new home and are oftentheir lifeline during their initial days and weeks after arrival.
