Each year, at its annual storytelling event, Stories From the HeART, HRI honors an individual, a law firm, a rising star, and a community partner for their contributions to HRI’s clients, who are immigrant survivors of human rights abuses from across the world.
“We at Momentous Institute are grateful to HRI, who has long been a champion of elevating mental health needs by proactively asking the necessary questions, providing education, and connecting families to our services,” noted Maria Sanchez Ray. “This work is an honor and a privilege, and we are so humbled to be even a small piece of the story for the brave families living in our communities.”
Over the past 22 years, HRI has provided legal and critical social services for asylum seekers fleeing human rights abuses, unaccompanied immigrant children, and survivors of serious crimes who qualify for status under the Violence Against Women Act and U visa programs.
