Partners

Without the generous support of individuals, organizations, foundations, corporations, and governments, Ayuda would not be able to support low-income immigrants in D.C., Virginia and Maryland. 

Thank you to all our vital partners, who help to ensure that immigrants in need  have access to critical and life-saving services.

Ayuda's Washington, D.C. office has moved!

Ayuda is excited to announce that as of Tuesday, September 1, 2021 we have a NEW DC office! Ayuda will no longer be operating out of our 6925B Willow St NW nor our 1413 K St. NW offices.

Our new Washington, D.C. office is located at 1990 K Street NW, Suite 500 Washington, DC 20006.
