"AsylumWorks taught me how to open doors for myself and not just stand and wait for doors to be opened."
What We Do
Asylum seekers come to the U.S. with many needs but few resources of their own. AsylumWorks provides services to help clients build healthy, safe, and stable lives.
Our wraparound services include:
- Offering safe and supportive relationships that validate and normalize client feelings
- Helping clients understand and manage the ongoing effects of trauma
- Providing information and referrals to local organizations that can offer food, clothing, and needed supplies
- Connecting clients to our trusted network of free and low-cost immigration attorneys
- Introducing clients to healthcare providers trained to work with asylum seekers
- Helping clients plan and problem-solve their way out of crisis
