RIF Asylum Support
Since 2006, RIF Asylum Support (the Refugee and Immigrant Fund) has been an entry-point and navigator for refugees seeking asylum in New York city. We provide legal and social services that help asylum seekers get back on their feet and rebuild their lives.
RIF offers easy access to legal consultations that empower asylum seekers with the information they need to complete the asylum process. We also educate asylum seekers on the risks they face, and provide referrals to trustworthy legal, medical, and mental healthcare providers. In partnerships with sustainable food and green-technology innovators, RIF provides newcomers with job-training opportunities that help them succeed in the competitive NYC job market.
