Navigating Parenthood with an Undocumented Status

How do you navigate life as an undocumented parent? As family can take many different shapes and forms, this support group is open to undocumented individuals who are mothers, fathers, parents, and guardians. We will have a space to explore the different ways in which an undocumented status influences our lives and experiences as parents, and vice versa. We will collaboratively identify and practice approaches to managing through challenging and difficult moments that arise from our unique identities. We will also use space to gain awareness of our skills, values, and hopes as parents.

UndocuBlack Support Group

Everyone has experienced the loss of something, someone, or some opportunity, which has significantly impacted their daily functioning. The focus of this group is to answer the following questions: What is grief? What kinds of losses lead to grief? What are the physiological signs of grief? What are culturally acceptable ways to grieve? In addition to answering these questions, we will learn how to apply healthy self-care interventions to help ourselves and others as they go through the grieving process. Group participation is paramount, as the facilitator will guide the group to understand, appreciate, and construct a framework for grief and loss within a cultural experience. At some point in our lives, we will have the task of making sense of loss; let’s address this task with humility, confidence, and acceptance.
