A donor is donating $5,000 towards one of two programs.
Many refugees and asylum-seekers seek refuge here in the United States without knowing any English. HIAS PA provides hundreds of refugees and immigrants each year learn "Survival ESL." We ensure that everyone--regardless of their literacy level, has the potential for success.
Through the Philadelphia Partnership for Resilience (PPR), HIAS PA provides legal services to survivors of (typically state-sponsored) torture and their families. HIAS PA works with dozens of individuals annually, helping clients apply for asylum and reunite with family members.
