In September of 2022, Instituto responded to the influx of new migrant arrivals to Chicago by launching Project AMOR (Asylum Migrant Outreach Response). In conjunction with the City of Chicago, Instituto created an Amazon Wishlist to mobilize donation efforts for this new population.  Since the launch of the wishlist, over $410,000 in essential items such as clothes, toiletries, diapers, and hygiene products, have been purchased by generous donors to help aid migrants.  Instituto has also directly assisted over 3,500 asylum seekers by helping them obtain essential items as well as providing them with legal aid and financial literacy direction.


With a surge of new arrivals that began in May of this year, Instituto del Progreso Latino began accepting physical donations of new and unused clothes and other essential items to its buildings. In just over 6 months Instituto has received over 12,000 donated essential items which have been dispersed to various police districts, other non-profit organizations, housing sites, and respites. Additionally, over 600 people from all over the Chicago land area have signed up to volunteer and assist with Instituto's Project AMOR efforts. 

Your generous, tax-deductible gift will directly support Instituto's efforts to assist the recent influx of migrants to Chicago.

Proceeds will go towards providing basic necessities for individuals most in need, such as food, clothing, and toiletries.   To learn more, visit us at
