Ayuda supports and protects immigrant victims of domestic violence, sexual assault, stalking, and human trafficking, as well as neglected children and youth. Whether someone is in crisis and needs immediate protection or a family requires long-term assistance, Ayuda’s social workers are there.

Social workers work with our clients to identify their unique needs and goals. We then work with community resources to help them find emergency and transitional shelter, food, clothing, or medical and mental health care for themselves and their children. Ayuda’s services also include safety planning, crisis intervention, emotional support, and trauma-informed therapy so these survivors can heal and recover.

While many of our clients also receive legal assistance from us, it is not required to receive social services.
