For 21 years, Human Rights Initiative of North Texas has promoted human rights and dignity by providing free legal and social services for immigrant survivors of human rights abuses.
HRI clients are asylum seekers fleeing persecution; unaccompanied children who have been abused, neglected, or abandoned; and survivors of domestic abuse or violent crime. All live below 150% of federal poverty guidelines. With help from our network of hundreds of trained volunteers and community partners, HRI helps eligible immigrants obtain legal status and employment authorization. Social services and strength-based empowerment programs provide community, aid, support, and opportunities for self-advocacy.
