GRASSROOTS LEGAL SERVICES
In 2010, a project called Encounters of Hope was established to assist the rapidly growing population of Hispanic/Latino families whose basic needs were underserved. Encounters assisted over 100 individuals and their families. It was clear that more help was needed for the wider immigrant population.
The Immigration Advocacy and Support Center (IASC) or “I Ask” was formed to provide low cost, high quality immigration-related legal services and to educate communities in Southeastern Connecticut on immigration law and policy. IASC assists immigrants from all countries.
Our Mission Statement
IASC’s goal is to ensure that immigrants get the full benefit and protection of the law and the support of the community as they attempt to become citizens.
