We provide a holistic approach to serving Latino immigrants who are victims of domestic violence, sexual assault, and other crimes.
An Immigration attorney provides a broad range of legal and immigration services through our victim services programs to help Latino victims of crime. It is the only program for Hispanics victims in Sussex County that offers free legal representation and advocacy in Immigration Court (Maryland, Pennsylvania and New Jersey) and provides outreach and education to Hispanic victims in Sussex County, Delaware.
The Victims' Immigration Services and Assistance (VISA) Program provides direct services and assistance to Hispanic victims of crime and survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault and their families. Our VISA program also provides access to vital services, preventive education and community resources.
Hope for Tomorrow (Esperanza para Mañana) Program
The Hope for Tomorrow program offers advocacy, support and immigration services to Spanish-speaking victims and survivors of domestic violence and their children as they transition from abuse to independence. The goal of the program is to educate, support and empower our domestic violence Latina clients and their children as they move from abusive relationships to safe and independent living.
Our Victim Services team helps them by offering free culturally and linguistically appropriate supportive domestic violence victim services, including interpretation, translation, transportation, accompaniment, referrals to auxiliary services, legal advocacy, mental health counseling and victim immigration services. The objective is to assist our clients as they overcome obstacles, such as language and cultural barriers, to counsel them through the domestic violence legal process, and to educate Latino families about their rights, procedures to report and legal resources available to them.
Seeds of Hope (Semillas de Esperanza) Program
The Seeds of Hope Program offers mental health counseling and supportive services to Latina women and children to inform them about their legal rights, educate them to prevent further abuse, dispel myths associated with abuse, provide encouragement, and ultimately help them discover alternatives that are available to them to reduce isolation and become hopeful again.
