RAICES, Refugee and Immigrant Center for Education and Legal Services

1910 Pacific Ave. Suite 5045
Dallas, Texas 75201

Founded in 1987 at the Refugee Assistance Project by community activists in South Texas, RAICES is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit agency that has grown to be the largest immigration legal services provider in Texas. With offices in Austin, Corpus Christi, Dallas, Fort Worth, and San Antonio and staff based in Houston and Washington, D.C., RAICES is a front line organization in the roiling debate about immigration and immigrants in the world.

As an organization that combines expertise developed from the daily practice of immigration law with a deep commitment to advocacy, RAICES is unique among immigration organizations. A diverse staff of 110 attorneys, legal assistants, and support staff provide consultations, direct legal services, representation, assistance and advocacy to communities in Texas and to clients after they leave the state. In 2016, RAICES staff closed 43,000 cases at no cost to the client.

Our advocacy and commitment to change are driven by the clients and families we serve everyday as our attorneys and legal assistant provide legal advocacy and representation in an immigration system that breaks apart families and leaves millions without pathways to legal status.
