Our Impact

Our clients' personal stories of triumph speak to Casa Cornelia's impact.  However, when we step away from the day to day to reflect on our accomplishments, we are validated in saying that lives are changed, victims are free from fear, and human dignity is restored one life at a time. 

In 2016, Casa Cornelia responded to 2,414 persons seeking assistance from Casa Cornelia Law Center:

Asylum Program - 610

Victims of Crime Program - 557

Children's Program - 999


Other forms relief including DACA - 248

by providing information, guidance, and/or representation.


Providing a bridge to humanitarian protection to those we serve would not be realized without our volunteers, who exponentially increase our impact. In 2016, 542 dedicated volunteers, including attorneys from the private bar, interpreters, translators, students and others, donated an astonishing 18,951 hours of their time to helping Casa Cornelia's clients.
