Immigrants experience many of the same challenges others do, including economic instability, lack of educational opportunities, housing, and food insecurity, and increasing health disparities. However, a lack of immigration status creates a large barrier to overcoming these challenges.
Often Immigrant Legal Center and Refugee Empowerment Center clients need a little extra support than what our programs are designed to provide. While many of our clients qualify for fee waivers and other financial assistance programs, their lack of immigration status can make it difficult to afford required medical exams, transportation to appointments or work, and sign their kids up for activities at school.
This holiday season, we are launching our new Client Support Fund–and we need your help!
Our goal is to raise $50,000 by December 31, 2022 to create a fund that our attorneys, legal team, social workers, and resettlement case managers can access to cover unexpected expenses for clients needing a little extra help as they navigate our complicated and lengthy immigration system.
Your donation today will go directly to support our newest neighbors when they need their community most.
