From our modest offices in Washington, DC, and Falls Church, Virginia, immigrants from 104 countries around the globe have accessed Ayuda’s services. Latinos comprise 70% of Ayuda clients, while the rest are Asians, Europeans, Caribbeans, Africans, and many others. Ayuda’s full-time attorneys and social workers work closely with clients to decide how they wish to proceed. All of Ayuda’s direct services staff speak Spanish and many speak a third language. Over twenty staff attorneys (and many pro bono attorneys) work fearlessly, often facing abusers, traffickers and those who have defrauded immigrants.
