Our remote delivery service lets us bring our cutting edge resources to rural Texas, where there are few--if any--free bilingual service providers available to immigrant victims. We do all of our work with clients over the phone, through the mail, or via video conference technology;LSVAP clients never have to travel to Austin.
Each client we serve gives us the opportunity to evaluate what resources are needed to help survivors break the cycle of abuse. Above all else, LSVAP always strives to make it easier for the next victim of abuse to get the help they need.
LSVAP targets underserved rural communities in Central and Northeast Texas.
Lone Star Victims Advocacy Project provides advocacy, education, and free legal services for immigrant victims of abuse. By improving the resources available to abused immigrants, we can empower victims to leave abusers and reduce the amount of domestic violence in rural Texas communities.
