¡Oyeme! is a collaborative project that responds to the surge of refugee children fleeing violence from Central America who have arrived in Montgomery County. Many of the children have experienced horrific circumstances in their country of origin as well as in the migration here. Our Project partners include Imagination Stage, The Hispanic Heritage Foundation (HHF), Montgomery County Department of Recreation, Councilmember Nancy Navarro, and the Department of Health and Human Service’s Street Outreach Network (SON).

¡Oyeme! strives to provide a creative arts outlet for young people, utilizing best practice culturally-based, trauma-informed theatre and arts activities to create a sense of community among the participants, and provide a safe space for immigrant youth to share their stories. Our hope is that as a result of our efforts not only will the children feel welcomed, but they can begin the healing process that will allow them to assimilate into their new community. I truly believe there is no better way to connect to another human being than through the arts.

We need YOUR help to continue this important program. Please consider supporting ¡Oyeme! today. Gifts of any size are needed and greatly appreciated.
