Georgia Asylum & Immigration Network (GAIN)'s mission is to to provide free immigration legal services to victims of crime and persecution. Our vision is safety, freedom, and opportunity for all.
What We Do
Since its inception in 2005, Georgia Asylum & Immigration Network (GAIN) has served Georgia's vulnerable immigrant community with pro bono legal representation.
GAIN attorneys train and mentor volunteer attorneys, screen cases, and offer technical assistance in immigration matters, while taking on a small percentage of our cases, usually with complex needs, through direct representation. Our impact has grown over time as we expanded the Asylum program's successful model of training and mentoring volunteer attorneys to create the Victims of Violence program for victims of human trafficking, domestic violence, sexual assault, and other crimes.
Since 2005, through direct representation and pro bono referrals, GAIN has helped over 6,600 women, men, and children secure immigration status as a result of a prior victimization or fear of persecution.
