Social Services

We connect our clients to social services and other vital resources in their neighborhoods and in their languages.

By providing social services to our clients, we help them stabilize their day-to-day lives and promote their safety and well-being as they pursue justice in the legal system.

During this period of uncertainty, our clients often need access to:

  • Food pantries;
  • Emergency shelters and housing;
  • Medical services and medical debt forgiveness programs;
  • Public benefits;
  • Employment services;
  • English and vocational classes; and
  • Referrals for legal services that are outside our scope.

In addition to addressing our clients’ immediate physical needs, we also prioritize their mental and emotional well-being by providing regular:

  • Safety planning;
  • Supportive counseling; and
  • Mental health screenings.

We also conduct outreach and training, in partnership with the communities we serve and other advocates, to increase immigrant women and girls’ access to culturally-sensitive and trauma-informed services. To this end, our social services staff participate in a number of regional coalitions and help inform our local and national advocacy efforts.

Working from a client-centered, strengths-based perspective, our ultimate goal in our social services programs is to empower our clients to make thoughtful and life-fulfilling decisions that help them to achieve stable, violence-free futures for themselves and their families.
