About

Please help temporarily relocate the Tahirih Justice Center's Houston Galleria office on the week of May 5th and May 12th. We will be relocating from our fourth floor suite to a first floor suite so that we can expand our fourth floor office to provide more lifesaving holistic services to our clients.

We protect immigrant women and girls in the United States through holistic legal services. By the time a woman or girl arrives at our doors, she is already a hero. Your support empowers her to transform the world - one person, one family, and one community at a time.

IMMIGRATION LAW

We represent immigrant women and girls who we believe have a legitimate claim to legal status under U.S. immigration law as survivors of gender-based violence.

FAMILY LAW

We ensure our clients' legal needs are met in family courts, safeguarding children against abuse and helping women divorce their abusers.

CIVIL LAW

We engage in appellate advocacy and impact litigation, and support clients in recovering damages from harms they have suffered, such as trafficking.

FORCED MARRIAGE PROTECTION

We provide confidential support and assistance to individuals in the United States who are facing forced marriages in this country or abroad.

SOCIAL SERVICES

We connect our clients to shelter, employment-related training, food pantries, and other services so they can gain greater control over their lives.

MEDICAL SERVICES

We help our clients obtain medical and mental health services, a vital step in the road to recovery from physical and psychological trauma.
