Serve By Giving

Our financial commitment matches our passion.

Chippewa Valley Bridge Builders is a coalition of faith-based organizations and community members that is sponsoring an asylum-seeking immigrant family from Central America who arrived in the Eau Claire area in 2021. First Congregational UCC is CVBB’s fiscal agent. Although the family is legally authorized to live here, they must await federal approval to apply for a work permit and are not eligible for federal assistance programs while awaiting their asylum hearing. Their living and legal expenses are funded by the CVBB through donations and fundraisers, 100 percent of which goes directly for their needs.

As a sponsor, CVBB partners with the family on their asylum-seeking journey and provides stability for their life here. For more information, contact Greg Barnes:
