How Our Teams Work
We assist our neighbors to develop and submit their asylum applications. The application process is lengthy, detailed and frequently confusing for our neighbors. Our teams assist in this difficult process. We have volunteers, trained by immigration experts, who collect history and demographic information, assure and assist our neighbors to tell the story and details of their persecution. The story of their past and future fear is difficult to share, yet essential for a successful application.
Our three (3) person team consists of an interpreter, an interviewer, and a notetaker. Together, they work collaboratively to listen, learn, and assist our neighbors in telling their story. Once the application is drafted it is reviewed by attorneys before being submitted.
The team collaborates with the neighbor using WhatsApp. The ability to be virtual allows for flexibility in scheduling and location.
