Rural Legal Services
Meet the Only Texas Statewide Rural Legal Immigration Services Program
Where you live should not dictate how, when, and if you can get support. But in a state as big as Texas, folks living outside the big cities often drive as much as an hour for something as simple as groceries or to see a doctor. This lack of access to basic services especially impacts immigrant survivors of domestic abuse.
The RAICES Rural Legal Services Program assists immigrants in rural areas who are fleeing abusive and dangerous situations. Led by Glenaan O’Neil, the program is designed to work remotely, giving us the flexibility to work with immigrant survivors across the state.
We’re fighting for families. We’re fighting for the independence of our service recipients. And we’re fighting to strengthen roots for our community members.
