 U-VISA  Immigration Relief for Victims of Human Trafficking, Domestic Violence and Other Crimes Legal aid donated by Aneudy Neo Gonzalez, Esq.General Counsel Executive Director of MassCareLink

Overview The U nonimmigrant status (U visa) is set aside for victims of certain crimes who have suffered mental or physical abuse and are helpful to law enforcement or government officials in the investigation or prosecution of criminal activity. Congress created the U nonimmigrant visa with the passage of the Victims of Trafficking and Violence Protection Act (including the Battered Immigrant Women’s Protection Act) in October 2000. The legislation was intended to strengthen the ability of law enforcement agencies to investigate and prosecute cases of domestic violence, sexual assault, trafficking of aliens and other crimes, while also protecting victims of crimes who have suffered substantial mental or physical abuse due to the crime and are willing to help law enforcement authorities in the investigation or prosecution of the criminal activity. The legislation also helps law enforcement agencies to better serve victims of crimes.

  • You were helpful, are helpful, or are likely to be helpful to law enforcement in the investigation or prosecution of the crime. If you are under the age of 16 or unable to provide information due to a disability, a parent, guardian, or next friend may assist law      enforcement on your behalf.
  • The crime occurred in the United States or violated  U.S. laws.

Inspirational Speaking

"Jails, Institutions, or Death" is a familiar saying heard around 12-step meetings, meant to convey the bleak future that awaits all who continue down the perilous path of substance use and addiction. Hear how my brush with all three, resulted in a miracle that transformed my life, carrying me out of darkness and into beauty and light. Today, I share my MESSage of experience, strength, and hope to inspire others and address the obstacles and stigma. Learn how I went from a lifetime of addiction, to starting my own business and giving back to my community, in under 5 years.

Highlights of Hope

All it takes is the power of one...to direct a life toward greatness. A New Hope advocate validated me with love, hope, and kindness. I was so deeply moved, I began my own nonprofit, fulfilling a dream to give back to the community.
