Just as the great ocean has one taste, the taste of salt, so also this teaching and discipline has one taste, the taste of liberation. - Gautam Buddha

Families Unidas - Community Funds

“Freeing my husband had a deep impact on me. I felt stronger because the group gave me the strength and emotional support. I felt stronger with NSM. God has a plan for everything and the change for my family was a total transformation. For me the committee is a family of the heart.”

Our History

In spring of 2018, NSM organized a committee of twenty-five immigrant members who are part of Accompaniment. This committee – called Familias Unidas – launched NSM’s Community Fund for Bond and Legal Support. It is the only fund in the city to help immigrants get a family member out of detention or pay for legal fees. Leading by example, this fund proves the effectiveness of collective action.​
