“As an immigrant, 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. Thanks to Advocates for Immigrant Survivors now I will be able to go back to school and have a brighter future with my children.”
