USE ASYLUMCONNECT TO FIND VERIFIED RESOURCE REFERRALS FOR LGBTQ+ CLIENTS

ARE YOU A LAWYER OR OTHER DIRECT SERVICE PROVIDER WORKING WITH LGBTQ+ ASYLUM SEEKERS OR OTHER LGBTQ+ PEOPLE IN NEED?

Launched in 2016 in the United States, the “AsylumConnect Catalog” is the world’s first tech resource platform for those fleeing persecution due to sexual orientation or gender identity.

Use our free resource website and mobile app to gather verified referrals for your LGBTQ+ clients, which address an array of essential needs including: medical, mental health, housing, transportation, translation, educational and employment services. We want to make sure you are taking full advantage of all the tools we offer to help you more easily identify safe resources to share with clients.

Our users looking for referrals for a client (or someone else in need) include:

  • Immigration attorneys
  • Corporate attorneys working on pro bono LGBTQ+ asylum/immigration cases
  • Law students working on pro bono LGBTQ+ asylum/immigration cases
  • Case managers and social workers
  • Resettlement agencies
  • Healthcare providers
  • Government agencies
  • LGBTQ+ centers and other nonprofits
  • Volunteer-run grassroots groups
  • Friends and family members of LGBTQ+ people in need

HOW ARE SERVICE PROVIDERS VERIFIED PRIOR TO BEING LISTED ON YOUR SITE?

Every direct service provider listed on AsylumConnect is vetted by our trained volunteers to be welcoming to LGBTQ+ asylum seekers and other LGBTQ+ people fleeing persecution.

Our trained volunteers employ a rigorous tailored verification process for all direct service providers listed on AsylumConnect. Our verification process asks three core questions:

  • Is the direct service provider active and legitimate?
  • Is the direct service provider LGBTQ+ affirming? 
  • Is the direct service provider accessible to asylum seekers and the undocumented community?

A provider must be all three of these things before it is listed on AsylumConnect. Our team answers these questions by researching and often directly communicating with each provider. We repeat our vetting process for every provider listed on AsylumConnect at least once every 6 months.

Please see the “Our Vetting Process” page for more information.
