Donate Today!

When you donate to CLIA you make a long-term investment in the clients we serve every year. Your generosity saves lives and reshapes futures for the better. A donation to CLIA makes family reunification possible, helps asylum-seekers and refugees to be free and safe, empowers survivors of domestic violence, helps talented students pursue their college degrees, and ultimately gives immigrants the chance to achieve their American Dream.

Immigrants are integral, important, and necessary members of our society and when you invest in an immigrant’s future you benefit all Americans. Our clients pay taxes, obtain an education to fulfill their passions and dreams, and support their communities by giving back to society. CLIA and the thousands of clients we aid and support thank you for your generous support of immigrants and refugees families in Lincoln, Nebraska and beyond.

Francine, a compassionate and caring woman, was an activist in Uganda fighting for the rights of the disabled. The Ugandan government persecuted her for her benevolent work. Unknown men showed up at her home and threatened and physically assaulted her. Eventually, she was forced to flee and to make the heart-wrenching decision to leave her sons Aaron and Matt behind. She arrived in the United States as an asylum-seeker in 2004. In 2011, thanks to CLIA, her sons legally joined her in Lincoln, Nebraska.
All my hopes and dreams were in sight thanks to the hard work of the people at CLIA. I could not afford a lawyer, but through their pro-bono help, I was able to apply for my daughter and bring her home to me. It had been 19 years since I left her with her uncle, but she is still my baby. When she walked down the airport terminal, I felt such relief. I felt like I could breathe again. My family was together.

Let’s work together and help immigrants achieve their dream today!
