It is one thing to see the nightly news and anguish about the plight of new immigrants coming to America, and it’s another to take action, even in a small place like the Eastern Shore. And those volunteering to help these new neighbors navigate a complex new country in a new language are motivated for humanitarian reasons.
But family history is another critical reason why Robin Stricoff and Davis Bobrow, the founders of Humane Treatment for Immigrants, began a local effort to help these families assimilate locally. In both cases, they come from families who made that same difficult journey.
In our Spy interview, Robin and Davis share their family stories of coming to the United States and their mission to assist a new generation of citizens to our country.
