Denver immigrants forced out of shelters

Francis Marrevals is the kind of mother willing to face the worst so her children can have a chance.

Several years back, her son was diagnosed with autism, but he could not get the professional care he needed in Venezuela. The country’s near economic collapse left medical services out of reach for her and so many others. But she had to get help for her kid.

Marrevals, her husband and their three children did the unthinkable: They left Venezuela and everything they knew in search of support for her son.

And so the family walked… and walked… and walked for thousands of miles, through Darién Gap, a stretch of jungle connecting Colombia with Panama, and then several other countries. They eventually entered the United States and made their way from Texas to Denver.
