On the first Tuesday of every month, AID FOR AIDS teams up with The Legal Aid Society to provide legal services to our beneficiaries, as well as to many immigrants living in New York City. Thanks to this partnership, we have been able to help a significant number of immigrants in NYC who do not have the necessary resources to obtain legal status in the United States.
AID FOR AIDS is thrilled with the bond we have created with the Legal Aid Society!
