HOUSTON IMMIGRATION LEGAL SERVICES

Houston Immigration Legal Services Collaborative is providing emergency resources for immigrants impacted by Hurricane Harvey. In response to Harvey, the Collaborative is organizing several efforts:

– Convening our partners to address what legal services providers and immigration experts can to do provide benefit to Harvey survivors
– Identifying gaps in resources for immigrants and refugees and collaborating with partners to determine the best way to fill those gaps
– Creating materials for partners to use when advising clients about how to navigate Harvey relief as an immigrant/refugee, such a our Harvey FAQ: bit.ly/harveyfaq
– Deploying immigration attorneys to emergency shelters to give consultations on the intersection between disaster recovery and immigration issues.

Through their work, a few explicit needs are already emerging:

– Direct monetary assistance for those who don’t qualify for federal relief to support lost wages, housing, transportation, medical costs, etc.
– The need for disaster relief resources and information in multiple languages.
– Education and advocacy directed at government entities and organizations who are working with Harvey survivors to help them understand the particular needs of people without legal status.

The Collaborative has established a pass-through fund (HILSC Harvey Assistance for Immigrants) to provide Harvey-recovery support to immigrants and refugees, and particularly undocumented individuals.
