What is AWE and how will the funds be used?
Every year thousands of men, women and children seeking asylum find themselves in the Baltimore area, with no place to go and no community to support them. Asylum seekers have fled their home countries due to persecution or even torture. Asylee Women Enterprise (AWE) provides housing, community support, English classes, medical and legal referrals, job readiness and education. The asylum process is a very long and lonely journey; AWE is a safe and nurturing place to call home while asylum seekers rebuild their lives. By joining Team AWEsome, you will help ensure our ability to continue to meet the most basic needs for shelter, food and a sense of belonging for asylum seekers.
