ARISE Helps Immigrant Women and Children

CDP General Councilors, Sisters Anita Brenek, Lourdes Leal and Mary Bordelon visited the ARISE SUPPORT CENTER in Alamo, Texas with other LCWR Region 12 members. The Sisters were meeting in San Juan, Texas in the Rio Grande Valley and heard from several agencies that work with immigrants and in the colonias. Staff from ARISE explained how the center works with the immigrant community, especially women, children, and youth.
