Opening Doors for New Americans since 1882
We are proud to announce that HIAS Pennsylvania has received $20,000 from local foundation Women’s Way’s Community Women’s Fund in support of our Chester County Immigrant Survivor Interpersonal Violence Project. Women’s Way has been a longtime supporter of HIAS Pennsylvania, but this is a marked increase in funding to our interpersonal and domestic violence project. With the funds, we are able to continue and grow our partnership with the Domestic Violence Center of Chester County. We both visit and get referrals from the shelter for their clients in need of immigration legal services. Since there are very limited resources outside of Philadelphia County for legal and social services of any kind, we are proud and grateful to be able to continue providing them.
