Vive invites you to participate in helping refugees/asylum seekers to freedom. Your gift to Vive is a gift for freedom. This gift can be funding for food for the children and mothers; a gift of soap for laundry and cleaning; a gift of shoes and socks for the men who work. These are just a few of the many possible opportunities where your dollars can make a difference in the refugees’ lives.
If you would like to learn more about Vive (Vive La Casa), we invite you to visit us on-site. To schedule tours or submit requests for presentations about Vive, please contact us at (716) 892-4354 ext. 402.
