Understanding Our Work

The monumental triumph of escaping abusive environments often demands everything from survivors. By the time they reach American soil, they may possess little more than the will to build a new life. Even the most fortunate among them may be ill-equipped to navigate the difficult legal process that awaits, let alone provide for themselves and their loved ones.

They have the will. They have the ability. But not the resources. They don’t want a handout. They need a helping hand. Without it, choices and opportunities dwindle, and we all suffer the loss of the potential each person holds.

We choose to extend the safety, liberty, and hope America has given us to those who desperately need it.

Whether you need help yourself or want to support HRI’s efforts, we have a place for you.

If you have any questions, please call.
