CASFV Awarded $10K to Assist Immigrant Survivors of Sexual and Family Violence.

The Texas Bar Foundation awarded the Center Against Sexual and Family Violence $10,000.00 in support of legal and immigration advocacy for survivors of sexual and family violence.

“We are honored to once again receive the generous $10,000.00 grant from the Texas Bar Foundation,” said Stephanie Karr, CASFV executive director. “We know that those impacted by sexual and family violence face many challenges that become more complex as an immigrant. Their support of our Legal and Immigrant Advocacy for Survivors of Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault program serves as encouragement that immigrant survivors will continue to have a safe place to seek assistance.”

The immigration advocacy program recently received full accreditation as the only family violence center and non-profit that is accredited by the Board of the Immigration Appeals (BIA). With this accreditation, CASFV is able to expedite services to clients as it relates to assistance via the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) and U-VISA’s

CASFV impact (fiscal year 2016-2017):

  • 952 people sought emergency shelter
  • 2,877 sought support through our Family Resource Center
  • Together CASFV served 3,829, of which 1,101 individuals received support from the Legal and Immigrant Advocacy for Survivors of Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault program

CASFV is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to confront and prevent domestic violence and sexual assault as an advocate for safety and justice through intervention, education, and community collaboration.
