The next 3 months are going to be very difficult for many families in SE Michigan, and doubly so for many immigrant families--they will not be receiving stimulus checks.
Immigrants used to find work in restaurants that are now closed. In years past, construction or landscape workers and their families would travel back home for the winter – but it is now much more difficult with COVID and border restrictions – and the rent and utility bills keep coming. Husbands of many families have recently been deported, leaving behind moms and children -- and the need to balance home-schooling with work – but even housecleaning jobs are far fewer because of COVID.
Fear and anxiety run deep for children (and adults) in these families, and family counseling costs money.
