Mano a Mano
Social service provider Mano a Mano knew that COVID-19 would create tremendous needs for Lake County immigrant communities that would not be met by the government response. So, they created a Tanda—an emergency community fund—to help individuals pay for food and urgent medical care. More than $300,000 has been raised to help those who often have no other option for support.
It’s heartbreaking to witness the fear and anxiety of our immigrant neighbors. But we’ve built trust and solidarity with our community. Now more than ever, they know they can count on us. They are not alone.” -Megan McKenna, Director of Strategy & Development
With over two decades of service, Mano a Mano works to empower immigrant families in Lake County to become full participants in American life. They provide immigration legal services, connect families to health care resources, run GED and English Language classes, and much more.
