Resource Library and Technical Assistance Center
To further our vision of a society in which all women and girls are economically secure, empowered to make their own choices, and can live and work free of discrimination, this Resource Library and Technical Assistance Center provides timely information on a vast array of topics of interest to those working across the country to help victims of violence against immigrant women. The National Immigrant Women's Advocacy Project (NIWAP, pronounced new-app) produces materials on a range of issues facing women and families. This searchable library of resources is designed to be used by OVW grantees and other advocates, attorneys, judges and service providers. The Technical Assistance section of this site provides OVW grantees and the general public access to questions frequently asked of Legal Momentum and an online Technical Assistance Request Form.
Legal Momentum, the nation's oldest women's legal defense and education fund, is dedicated to advancing the rights of all women and girls. NIWAP is the nation's expert on the rights and services available to immigrant victims of domestic and other violence, sharing this expertise through training, comprehensive publications, and technical assistance for lawyers and advocates nationwide. NIWAP leads national advocacy efforts for legal protections, social services, and economic justice for immigrant women.

NATIONAL DIRECTORY OF PROGRAMS WITH EXPERIENCE SERVING IMMIGRANT VICTIMS
A directory of service providers with experience working with immigrant victims of domestic violence, sexual assault, U-visa crimes and human trafficking, by state. If you are an individual or organization working with immigrant survivors, please make sure that your contact information is correctly represented within the directory.
Use the following link to search for service providers in your state. This directory is also useful to identify organizations in another state to which an immigrant victim may be considering moving. If you are working with an immigrant victim for whom you need resource materials on immigrant victims legal rights or you need a referral to another jurisdiction to a program that has staff or volunteers who speak the victim's language you can search this data base by language to identify such programs.
We recommend that you start your search with wider terms, such as state, city or language, and look for more specific options within these searches:
