In June of 2018, Suzanne Luchs read an article about families being separated at the border. She posted an anguished message on The Wheaton Moms’ Facebook page, convinced that together, those 6000+ women could surely do something to help. The overwhelming response prompted her to create the grassroots FB group “6000 Moms.”

The group provides comprehensive, holistic care to immigrant families seeking asylum. Members work in teams to offer housing, food, transportation, clothing, legal help, and most importantly, community and friendship.

Suzanne has lived in Wheaton for 40 years. She is the mom of two beautiful daughters adopted from China, and a former school teacher who now works in the medical field. Next to managing the daily operations of 6000 Moms, she is devoted to her three adopted sibling kitties.

The group is on the brink of becoming a 501(c)(3). Find them on Facebook by searching for “6000Moms.”
