Are you an immigrant woman or girl who needs protection from violence or threats to your life or freedom, or do you know someone who might need our help?
We provide free and confidential legal and social services to immigrant women and girls who are facing forms of violence that especially affect women and girls (like domestic violence, rape, and human trafficking), or who are denied basic human rights and freedoms because of their gender.
If you or someone you know is in immediate danger, please contact 911. Otherwise, please check below for more information about how to get help at our Baltimore, Greater DC, and Houston offices, as we do not accept walk-ins.
