Reaching our Goal of $5000!
Violence forces thousands of families to flee for their lives each day. The United Nation’s #WorldRefugeeDay shows the world that the global public stands with these refugees.
At Restoration Immigration Legal Aid (RILA), we help those fleeing violence and persecution to gain asylum. Our clients are refugees by legal definition and we are proud to support them while they walk through the difficult circumstances and navigate a challenging legal system as they apply for asylum.
On this World Refugee Day, RILA publicly commemorates the strength, courage, and perseverance of millions of refugees around the world, some of whom we now call close friends.
Will you stand with us?
You can honor those forced to leave impossible circumstances by bringing hope to our clients through a financial gift.
Help RILA Provide….
Work Permit Application
At RILA, we help asylum-seekers apply for their work-permits as soon as they are eligible. When an asylum-seeker receives his/her work permit, his/her life is transformed. At RILA, we see immigrant families working hard to support their children and rebuild their lives in safety.
Liaise with US Government Officials
RILA exists to help immigrants navigate the legal process of seeking asylum, and for many RILA clients, ICE is a significant component of this process. We have learned that ICE is an essential partner in serving our clients and upholding their dignity.
New Mother Care Package
When asylum-seekers arrive in the United States, they usually have no assets and they are not allowed to legally work. Those first few months are especially difficult leaving them vulnerable to homelessness, exploitation, food insecurity, and health issues. RILA does all we can to support and care for immigrant families, especially new mothers.
Transportation to a RILA appointment
RILA seeks to be a haven and home for asylum-seekers, who have lost their homes, families, and everything that is familiar to them. One way we do this is by offering transportation to those who are in greatest need to RILA appointments.
RILA operates solely on the generosity of friends who allow RILA to give tangible hope to our clients. Our monthly donors are our sustainers, and RILA depends on them when budgeting for the number of families we can feasibly help each year. Will you consider giving monthly to sustain RILA each month?
