The Project

Abby improved the economic well-being of low-income immigrants who are struggling to make ends meet during these difficult times. This population faces barriers to accessing and retaining government benefits for a variety of reasons, including type of employment, complex laws concerning immigrant eligibility for public benefits and language barriers. Abby represented low-wage immigrant workers and their families in the areas of access to food stamps, public health insurance, subsidized childcare and public assistance. Abby conducted outreach and clinics providing education to individuals and organizations in this area to ensure proper access to benefits.
