Despite being uniquely vulnerable to revictimization as well as income, food, and housing insecurity, immigrant survivors often hesitate to come forward due to fear of deportation, limited English proficiency, cultural barriers, and lack of access to resources. GAIN seeks to address these barriers by providing accessible, compassionate, trauma-informed service. The Victims of Violence program’s primary forms of relief for immigrant survivors are filings for T-visa, U-visa, VAWA Self-Petitions, and I-751 waivers; in addition, we assist our clients with holistic support services, social service referrals, adjustment of status, Temporary Protected Status (TPS) filings, employment authorization, and family reunification through consular processing. In 2021, GAIN’s Victims of Violence program provided service for over 120 cases.
