The demand for our free services remains at an all-time high, especially now as clients from Afghanistan and Ukraine come to our doors for help.

Clients like Adnan* who, after enduring years of religious persecution in his Middle Eastern home country, was able to flee to the United States in search of freedom. Like many asylum seekers, he faced the daunting task of presenting his case in court while the threat of deportation loomed. Nevertheless, with the help of his attorney, Adnan secured his freedom and found a renewed hope for the future. But Adnan is just one of many men, women, and children in need of urgent humanitarian protection.

Of the almost two thousand individuals who interacted with Casa Cornelia’s staff and volunteers last year, each had a story to tell. Some told of unimaginable sufferings. The narratives often include the worst horrors of the human experience and are difficult to hear. Still, our efforts have been met with joyous moments--an asylum grant, a successful appeal, an immigrant visa approved, a life forever changed.

For twenty-nine years, Casa Cornelia has been providing quality legal representation to indigent victims of human rights violations eligible to regularize their immigration status in the United States. Our ability to serve this community is possible through the commitment of staff and hundreds of volunteer attorneys, interpreters, and translators. Nothing, however, would have been accomplished without your support.

This spring, we are excited to share that you have an opportunity to double your gift thanks to the generosity of Susan Sharin and Laurina Young, who donated $20,000 towards our goal in honor of their Mothers. Through their gift, your contribution will be matched!

In the midst of today’s global conflicts, we anticipate unforeseen challenges in the months ahead. Please be as generous as possible in supporting our mission of protecting the human and civil rights of those in need.
