We celebrated a number of victories this month, here at HRI! Our community of supporters came together to throw our first HRI Baby Showerfor an asylum-seeker. Not to mention, several of our clients were granted legal status and work visas, like the Somalian asylum-seeker picture above.

It's back! Everyone's favorite day of giving is back again for the 7th year in a row. Make a gift of over $25 to HRI on September 22nd and The Communities Foundation of Texas will multiply your funds! Don't miss the opportunity to be a part of this amazing community giving day.
Asylum-seeker, Betty, recently found out she is unexpectedly pregnant. After reaching out to our many supporters, our friends at InterNations Dallas offered to throw Betty a baby shower.
To say this the least, our first HRI Baby Shower rocked! Betty is overwhelmed by the kindness that has been extended by our community of supporters. Together with various donors, we have raised over $1100 in donations for our newest HRI addition! It's not too late to give.
