Opening Doors for New Americans since 1882
The Pennsylvania Asylee Outreach Project (AOP) is a unique program servicing the needs of the asylee community throughout Pennsylvania. Funded by a grant from the Pennsylvania Refugee Resettlement Program, the AOP provides many different services free of cost. These include direct information-and-referral services, along with case management for those already granted asylum status.
Common client needs include application for and correction of identification documents; access to public benefits and Federal student financial aid; employment authorization advocacy; and counsel related to asylee relative petitions and applications to adjust status to legal permanent resident (green cards). The AOP is able to represent a limited number of low-income asylees in their applications for adjustment of status. In addition, the AOP organizes self-sufficiency workshops for asylees on topics such as home ownership, finding a job and access to health care. If you would like to partner with the AOP on a workshop, please contact the coordinator, Jason Hernandez, at 215-832-0900 or firstname.lastname@example.org
