Children and families arriving at the U.S. border to ask for protection is not new and is not unexpected. But this year we have seen a large increase in children arriving at the U.S.-Mexico border.

Children with legal representation are 5X more likely to gain U.S. protection. Children with access to culturally sensitive social and language services are more likely to thrive.

And this is why Ayuda’s work is so critical.

This summer YOU have the unique opportunity to help fundraise for Ayuda and help immigrant children access the holistic services they need.

Legal Services

Almost half of all immigrants seeking assistance have a valid legal claim or available legal avenue to obtain legal status in the US. However, immigration laws and related legal proceedings are complex.

To make a legal right a reality, low-income immigrants need help to successfully access and navigate our justice system. We provide expert legal services so that low-income immigrants can overcome barriers and access justice.

Unaware of their rights and overwhelmed by a complex legal bureaucracy and language barriers, many immigrants require the aid of a professional to navigate the U.S. immigration system. Ayuda’s staff attorneys and pro bono program serve more than 3,000 women, men, and children every year by helping them obtain visas, work authorization, legal status, and more.
