The Family Support Center
The Family Support Center at Tierra Nueva comes alongside the marginalized people who have little or no voice in the larger community, including recent immigrants, farm workers, families of jail inmates, and ex-offenders. Tierra Nueva staff accompany people to court; visit them in jail or immigration detention; provide pastoral counseling and prayer; and negotiate on their behalf with employers, landlords, and insurance companies.
A typical day at the Family Support Center in Burlington might involve supplying emergency clothing and blankets, assisting people with legal problems, or helping with job and housing applications. Staff members also serve as peacemakers, mediating in conflicts, reconciling estranged partners through marriage and family counseling.
The Family Support Center is open Mondays and Wednesdays, 11:00am - 4:00pm.
