Sin Barreras' mission is to empower immigrants and their families in Central Virginia, focusing on the Hispanic population, by educating, advocating and supporting their needs.
Through initiatives that promote cultural exchange, immigration support, and educational opportunities, Sin Barreras (Without Barriers) aims to break down barriers, celebrate diversity, and create a brighter, more connected community for all. It was founded in 2012 to help address the barriers Hispanic (or Spanish speaking) immigrants faced in accessing essential services.
At Sin Barreras/Without Barriers, you can create a welcoming community where immigrants thrive.
Success is when we're able to help families make it through urgent situations. It's when people that first came for help return for education seeking growth. It's when people are empowered to raise their voice to create change that leads to meeting the needs of the most vulnerable. It's when people are confident and prepared enough to take leadership roles with Sin Barreras and throughout our community.
Receiving the financial help and the gift card was a big help because I was not working due to COVID.
When you don't have any type of documents, people look at you, like, differently; they judge you. I feel like when I got DACA, I felt like I belonged a little more. Like I wasn't such an outsider anymore.
