Since 1973 Ayuda (which means “help" in Spanish) has welcomed tens of thousands of immigrants who want nothing more than to get a new start in “the land of opportunity.” But for so many foreign-born residents (one in eight in DC) simply asking for help is a challenge. Without a solid grasp of the language or legal system, they don’t know where to go or whom to trust. So Ayuda provides a wide range of immigration and family law assistance, as well as social services support, for all immigrants – men, women and children – from anywhere in the world. Along with
representation in family- and humanitarian-based cases, Ayuda offers comprehensive services for immigrant survivors of human trafficking and domestic violence – many of whom fear that the police, courts, and even shelters will not protect them. It also offers desperately needed, specialized advice and representation to abused, neglected, and abandoned immigrant children. Ayuda gives clients the opportunity fully and comfortably to call their new country home. You can extend a helping hand.
