AsylumConnect's Mission

We use technology to connect persecuted and marginalized LGBTQ people with verified safe services and support. Our flagship product (the "AsylumConnect Catalog") is the first and only resource website and app designed for LGBTQ asylum. LGBTQ asylum seekers and other LGBTQ people in need use AsylumConnect as a free digital one–stop–shop referral site to meet their needs in all aspects of their lives, including: housing, legal, medical, mental health, education and employment. Lawyers and nonprofits also use our free app to gather verified referrals for clients.

At AsylumConnect, we believe there should never be a time when someone does not know where it is safe to go for help due to their LGBTQ identity or immigration status.
