Mission Statement

Our mission is to advocate for local and immigrant families in need.

Description

Over the past 17 years, Global Family Legal Services ("GFLS") has provided legal advocacy, counseling and education, for families, religious workers, and immigrants.

Our unfolding vision and dream is to form Global Family Legal Network ("GFLNetwork") which enlists pro bono assistance from retired attorneys, mentors them with legal principles for their cases, and fulfills their desire to represent immigrants in desperate circumstances. Many non-citizens across the United States will benefit. People and organizations will give of themselves and also provide the financial support for GFLNetwork to provide this representation.

Those who feel the calling to dedicate themselves to this mission will become one part of a larger community with many missions - ours being attorneys, legal assistants, and secretaries serving as legal advocates. This global legal mission provides the opportunity to live in community with families who also embrace this vision of service.


Hundreds have been served by GFLS and now by bringing this dream into reality, thousands can be served by GFLNetwork.
