Terra Firma

Terra Firma: Healthcare and Justice for Immigrant Children stands as a vital resource for newly arrived unaccompanied minors and asylum-seeking families in New York City. Terra Firma was developed to meet patients' complex needs by providing co-located medical and mental health services, free legal representation, social support, and youth enrichment programming in our Montefiore-affiliated community health center.

At Terra Firma, healthcare professionals work closely with attorneys to improve health and legal outcomes, ensuring children and families land on solid ground. The current COVID-19 pandemic has made life for everyone more complex and stressful, but this is especially true for those who have just arrived in our community after fleeing unspeakable violence in their home countries. Delivering comprehensive, patient-centered services would not be possible without your support. Our goal is to raise $20,000 by December 31, 2020 from charitable individuals like you. Your tax-deductible donation will fully go to Terra Firma to support the children and families we serve.
