We envision a community where all immigrants succeed and thrive in the US. Ayuda is the only non-profit provider in the DC metro area that provides a wide range of immigration and family law assistance, as well as social services support, for all immigrants - including men, women and children - from anywhere in the world. This comprehensive and open approach gives all immigrants a single resource to go to. Our specialized services for immigrant children and for immigrant victims of domestic violence, sexual assault and human trafficking are truly unique in the area. Ayuda is well known in the immigrant community and provides linguistically and culturally appropriate services. In recent years, we provided assistance in over 2,300 cases a year, including immigration, family law, and social services support.

Mission: At Ayuda, we envision a community where all immigrants overcome obstacles in order to succeed and thrive in the United States. We realize our vision by advocating for low-income immigrants through direct legal, social and language services, training and outreach in the Washington DC metropolitan area.

For this week's "Fast Facts Friday", Ayuda presents information on the refugee ceiling and how it has fallen under the current Administration.

In addition to this, according to the American Immigration Counsel, "Actual admissions of refugees have also fallen well below 50 percent of the actual annual ceiling. At 22,491, 2018 had the lowest number of admitted refugees since the system was created in 1980." The numbers for refugees in the U.S are at an all time low and have fallen sharply in the last few years.

10/27/2020

Immigrant survivors of domestic violence face heightened risks as a result of factors like language, social isolation, lack of information or financial resources, cultural beliefs, or fear of deportation. They often face a number of barriers when seeking safety and justice.

This is why Ayuda works to provide free family law, protection order and crime victims’ rights legal services to low-income, immigrant survivors of domestic violence, sexual assault and stalking in Maryland and the District of Columbia.

We stand with immigrant survivors, and all survivors, because they deserve the right to access justice, transform their lives, and have a brighter future.
