Ayuda's mission is to advocate for low-income immigrants through direct legal, social and language services, training and outreach in the Washington, DC metropolitan area. We envision a community where all immigrants succeed and thrive in the United States. Ayuda believes justice should have no barriers. Ayuda's expert and dedicated professionals help immigrants from anywhere in the world navigate the immigration and justice systems and access the social safety net. This comprehensive and welcoming approach breaks down barriers, helps those in need, and strengthens communities. Ayuda's clients are some of our most marginalized and highly resilient community members. Many of Ayuda's clients come to the U.S fleeing violence in their home country. Many of the individuals who turn to Ayuda for help are victims of domestic violence, sexual assault, human trafficking, and/or other crimes. In 2021, Ayuda provided legal and social services to 2,800 immigrants from 105 countries.
