You have witnessed the humanitarian crises unfolding in our own backyard, here in San Diego. In the first few months of 2019, thousands of children and adult asylum seekers have arrived to our border, fleeing extreme violence and daily threats to their families’ safety. Instead of feeling overwhelmed and helpless, our response has been one of action and steady resolve.
Through your support, Casa Cornelia provides quality pro bono legal services and access to justice to these vulnerable communities, changing their lives for good. We treat each individual case with the same diligence, passion, and attention to detail that result in life-changing humanitarian protection.
Success stories resemble Martin’s* life: A child who lived through abandonment, instability, court hearings, and later on, the foster care system. Casa Cornelia took Martin’s case and represented him successfully throughout his legal journey. After graduating high school, he enrolled in San Francisco State University to pursue a counseling degree so that he could give back to his community. A few months ago, he stopped by Casa Cornelia to share his most recent accomplishments – among them, his American citizenship.
Your contribution provides free legal services for indigent communities who otherwise would not have access to counsel. Because of you, children like Martin can give back with the same dedication they were served
Please donate today to support Casa Cornelia’s clients at this critical moment. Thank you so much for your consideration in making the difference in their lives!
