Services We Offer Survivors
Tapestri’s Domestic Violence Program supports immigrant and refugee victims during and after experiencing domestic violence. Through casework, crisis counseling, legal advocacy, and referrals to culturally-sensitive, pro-bono attorneys, we help our clients build safe, self-sufficient lives.
Our Services Build Safe, Self-Sufficient Lives
- Crisis counseling
- Legal advocacy
- Referrals to culturally-sensitive, pro-bono attorneys
We directly provide legal advocacy, such as assistance in obtaining Temporary Protective Orders, and connect our clients to partners who help with legal matters, including child support and custody, divorce, and immigration proceedings. We provide linguistically-appropriate services to our refugee and immigrant clients in 15 languages. We walk our clients through whichever parts of the criminal justice system best serve their needs, assist them with connections to partner organizations (such as Georgia Asylum and Immigration Network and Atlanta Legal Aid Society), and support their learning about American culture and how the American criminal justice system works. We work to move our clients from crisis to stability and empower them to clearly make safe life decisions for themselves.
Every year, we conduct scheduled interpreter trainings which educate a minimum of 60 interpreters. Trainings are accredited by the American Translation Association (ATA). In addition to the languages listed below, we have interpreters available who speak the following languages: German, Haitian Creole, Italian, Kirundi, Kurdish, Lingala, and Tshiluba. If a language which is not listed here is needed, Tapestri will work to find an interpreter who can translate the language.

In addition to training interpreters, we also have outreach literature readily available for service providers who may encounter victims. Currently, this literature is available in the following languages:
