Direct Services

When a women or girl arrives at our doorstep, she is already a hero. She may have just one chance to flee violence, and she has seized it. Our goal is to empower her to build the safe and stable future she envisions.


We protect immigrant women and girls in the United States through holistic legal services.
Please note: Services provided vary by office depending on local staffing and capacity.

Immigration Law

We represent immigrant women and girls who we believe have a legitimate claim to legal status under U.S. immigration law as survivors of gender-based violence.

Family Law

We ensure our clients' legal needs are met in family courts, safeguarding children against abuse and helping women divorce their abusers.

Civil Law

We engage in appellate advocacy and impact litigation, and support clients in recovering damages from harms they have suffered, such as trafficking.

Forced Marriage Protection

We provide confidential support and assistance to individuals in the United States who are facing forced marriages in this country or abroad.

Social Services

We connect our clients to shelter, employment-related training, food pantries, and other services so they can gain greater control over their lives.

Medical Services

We help our clients obtain medical and mental health services, a vital step in the road to recovery from physical and psychological trauma.
