S.A.F.E. seeks to empower immigrants and vulnerable populations who have been marginalized due to their sexual orientation, gender identity, and other factors to reach their fullest potential by providing humanitarian assistance while fostering understanding and cooperation among diverse communities.
SAFE identifies and then collaborates with recent immigrants who would like to further their personals goals (e.g., achieving legal immigration status, finding a job, accessing healthcare, etc.) while giving back to the community. SAFE views each individual holistically and as an agent in their own empowerment rather than as a “case.”
SAFE conducts a monthly legal clinic, during which we meet with people on a walk-in basis and seek to answer questions regarding immigration status and options, including court and application preparation.
