We empower the people we work alongside to build powerful communities.

Our Work

Legal Services

Our in-house team of attorneys and legal representatives help their clients navigate the US citizenship and immigration system, keeping families together, and allowing them to achieve a greater sense of security.

Mental Health & Community Wellness

Healthy communities are empowered communities. We make a healthy lifestyle more accessible with workshops, support groups, and counseling, all through a trauma-informed and culturally-sensitive lens. 

Children & Youth

We work with young people from infancy through high school graduation to equip them with tools and resources to build a bright future, including educational programs and activities, mentoring, and family support. 

Adult Education & Training

Through foundational academic and professional programs like ESL, civics education, workforce development, and more, we provide the tools adults need for long-term success. 

Community Resources & Empowerment

We equip our community with the tools and information needed to thrive in the face of adversity, including “Know Your Rights” trainings and direct outreach.
