Transition time: New Anti Foreclosure Project!

Its been a little more than a year since we started this fundraising to support our work against foreclosures. With your support, we are glad to announce that we have accomplished the goals set. We are ready to ask you to join us in a new journey towards legal empowerment and housing justice.

Its been a little more than a year since we started this fundraising to support our work against foreclosures. With your support, we are glad to announce that we have accomplished the goals set. We are ready to ask you to join us in a new journey towards legal empowerment and housing justice.

Today, as we transition to this new fundraiser, we acknowledge and celebrate how every cent allocated to this initiative translated into sustained legal support and empowerment. We can do so much with your help. Let's go quickly over some of our achievements for this term.

  • In 2020 we offered accompaniment to hundreds of families thanks to your support. This process did not pause because of earthquakes or the pandemic. Realizing that crisis increases the vulnerabilities of those who can't afford mortgages, we committed to being as present as possible.
  • We had 620 participants at our legal education and advocacy workshops.
  •  Because we decided to be present, we dedicated more resources to legal helplines, available all day every day. We provided direct individual support to 163 families, primarily women, and elders in Puerto Rico. 
  • We trained 64 attorneys committed to the right to housing.
  • We sustained continuous efforts to demand financial institutions' respect for human rights. We launched #JustMoratorium campaigns and educated people about the rights relating to foreclosures at times of crisis.
  • We were in media, a lot to denounce, demand, and celebrate significant wins on behalf of women and families with mortgages.
  • We promoted storytelling initiatives to tell people that they are not alone, that we are here to accompany them because you all make this possible. Remember Ritha's story and know more about the access to justice community

Together we can do much more. Please continue supporting Ayuda Legal Puerto Rico. You can find our new project on legal empowerment against foreclosures here.

Please keep in touch, let us know about your ideas and recommendations, help us be more effective, and most important: donate, support, trust.
