43rd Anniversary Celebration

Immigrants are integral members of the community and, like everyone else, aspire to live full, productive lives. Ayuda’s holistic, culturally appropriate, and client-centered legal, social, and language access services provide low-income immigrants in the D.C. metropolitan region with important first steps to restore their lives, thrive, and succeed.

Celebrating Immigrant Lives! is Ayuda’s major fundraising event for the year. Your gift allows Ayuda to serve low-income immigrants seeking to live with dignity, without fear, and sustainably.

Every month, Ayuda has had to turn down dozens of immigrants’ requests for consultations because we do not have enough attorneys to meet with everyone, as much as we want to. In addition, our services are also bound by grant restrictions. Your unrestricted funding by sponsoring Celebrating Immigrant Lives! enables Ayuda to offer services it cannot otherwise provide.
