The Immigrant Legal Advocacy Project is a Portland-based non-profit that provides free legal services to immigrants, refugees, and asylum-seekers across the state of Maine.

When Leandre arrived in America, forced out by instability in his home country, he began again at square one. Left behind were his friends, his family, his possessions, and everything that he had worked so hard to attain. As he began to rebuild a life and a home, Leandre faced a new challenge: the legal intricacies that come with attempting to gain legal status in the United States. That’s where ILAP came in. Working closely with Leandre, they helped him work through the complex legal documents and procedure that mark the beginning of any immigrant’s life in America.
