Help for Immigrant Victims of Domestic Violence
Sanctuary for Families
$90,000 | 2012
Undocumented immigrants fleeing domestic violence back home or in the U.S. need protection, but many victims keep silent because they fear deportation. Our grant helped 450 immigrant victims of domestic violence get permanent or temporary protected status. The nonprofit law firm trained more than 1,000 lawyers at 56 firms and nearly 10,000 staff members at community groups to understand legal issues faced by these girls and women.
