 I would like to express my gratitude for all the help that Amigos Center has provided me over the years. I was first introduced to Amigos en Cristo after hurricane Wilma hit Immokalee. I volunteered to assist in caring for the children while their parents cleaned the much damaged community. I was immediately impressed by the sense of unity and the genuine will to help the community. Pastor Robert has since been there to help me and my family. Shortly after I married my husband, Pastor Robert offered us the opportunity to take part in a financial class by Dave Ramsey. I sincerely thank Pastor Robert and the Amigos Center for offering us this course, because it has definitely been a great financial tool for my marriage. The Immokalee Amigos Center informed me and my family that the Mexican Consulate was going to be at the Bonita Springs Amigos Center for one day. We were all able to get our passports and also were able to save a little on transportation to Miami thanks to the Amigos Center. When the Deferred Action plan for early childhood arrivals was approved, all of my paperwork was submitted by the Amigos Center Immigration specialists. I now have an employment authorization card and a driver's license. I consider this a huge blessing. I am proud to also say that I am now employed as a secretary at the Immokalee Amigos Center. This is yet another blessing made possible by the Amigos Center. Since my employment began, I continue to witness the same sense of unity that caught my attention many years ago. It is also a great feeling to now be an official member of an establishment that genuinely wants to help the community. I cannot explain how great this feels. All I can say in conclusion is: Thank you Amigos Center.
