“Thanks to Advocates for Immigrant Survivors, I was able to move out from a long, abusive relationship. I felt stuck and didn’t know how to get out. They provided me with a great service – words cannot describe it. I was connected to so many resources. I felt understood and supported. They showed patience and dedication to help out people like me that may be going through abuse. Now I will be able to go back to school and have a brighter future with my children.”
Immigration Legal Services
We provide trauma-informed immigration legal services to survivors of violent crime. We guide the immigration process with cultural sensitivity and topical expertise.
Criminal Case Status Updates
We ensure that the survivor understands the status of the case from which their victimization arose if the case is still ongoing.
Safety Planning and Enrollment in Services
We develop a personalized safety plan with the survivor. AIS also screens the survivor for eligibility in social services and programs related to the victimization.
Outreach and Education
Our events educate the community, whether it be survivors or service providers, on identification of and immigration options available to survivors.
Law Enforcement Advocacy
We work together with the survivor to report the crime they suffered to law enforcement. Additionally, we facilitate cooperation with the investigation of crime.
While AIS provides valuable services to survivors, we are unable to meet all survivors’ needs. Therefore, we make direct referrals to other community organizations.
