Helping immigrants who are victims of crimes committed in the U.S.

Deysi is originally from El Salvador and came to the U.S. in 2004 seeking a peaceful life from a turbulent one in her country. She fell in love and began to live with her boyfriend. From the beginning, he abused her. In 2007, police were called because she suffered extreme injuries on her body and especially in her face. This time, Deysi told the police about the abuse she had endured for many years at the hands of her boyfriend. He was taken to jail and convicted of aggravated domestic battery and was placed in a domestic violence shelter.
