2019 Impact Report

In 2019, HILSC and our members strengthened our mission to act and advocate against anti-immigrant policies and legal precedent. We continued our commitment to investing in impactful programs that provide immigrants stronger protections, access to services, education and empowerment in our community.

As a result of our community’s work, Houston is now home to a robust Immigrant Rights Hotline which serves as a single point of contact for families looking for legal services and information about rapidly changing policies; a pro bono Immigration Help Desk in our immigration court; and Deportation Defense Houston (DDH), which provides free representation to immigrants detained in Houston’s four detention centers; AcessHOU, a database of resources for agencies working with immigrants in Greater Houston; Forensic Evaluations, mental health evaluations for immigration cases of clients that have experienced trauma; and a Disaster Recovery Legal Corps that provides legal assistance for immigrants who were impacted by Hurricane Harvey. You can learn more about all of these innovative, creative projects throughout our 2019 Annual Report
