Keep Families Together is a 501(c)(3) non profit organization which re-unites children and families together especially those in immigration detention centers to restore mental health. All donations made to Keep Families Together are tax deductible.
Following the appalling news around June 2018 of children being separated from their parents and into detention centers, it is in this light we took a stand and act as a responsible corporation by embarking on the Keep Families Together.
“The prolonged separation in detention centers, risks traumatizing children who are already fleeing nightmarish situations in their home countries. The policy is a strategy setting children up for psychological scars that will take a lifetime to undo, states Psychiatry Professor at the University of Texas, Luis Zayas.
Zayas further states that the Trauma and stress impact the growth patterns of the brain that can cause decision-making, social development and intellectual capacity to be impaired. It really is an inhumane approach to handling the refugee crisis”.
Mental health is a severe disease and we should not overlook it. It is time to stand up for Liberation for the Kids. Keep Families Together Foundation marched the streets of Los Angeles at McArthur Park in Los Angeles, CA on July 21, 2018.
The separation of families is not just happening at the border, it’s happening right here in the United States. The families are being targeted right where they live.
The kids and parents are handcuffed right before their families eyes causing a traumatic experience for children and their parents.
This is happening to all immigrants within the United States that are either out of status or no status.
