About the Series » Asylum Application Assistance

Hope Acts will offer assistance to people seeking asylum, every Friday and Saturday at the Downtown Branch of the Portland Public Library. They will be on site to help with language interpretation, and to provide resources such as computer printing, photocopies and mailing envelopes. Hope Acts has also partnered with the Maine Immigration Resource Center and is able to provide financial assistance to cover the costs of passport photos and certified mail for people seeking asylum. They will NOT be able to offer any legal advice. However, they can help translate documents that describe legal matters.
