American Gateways (Austin Office)
American Gateways is one of the largest immigration legal services providers in Texas. Our clients receive culturally sensitive, trauma-informed legal representation from start to finish of a case. American Gateways is also the only nonprofit in the state to provide legal orientation, immigration workshops, and pro bono legal representation at four immigrant detention facilities. Our Austin office serves the T. Don Hutto Residential Center in Taylor, Texas. A central feature of our mission is to engage and educate immigrant communities, as well as local stakeholders, about immigration law and process, an individual’s rights within this process, and forms of relief for which an individual might be eligible. In addition to regular trainings and presentations within the Austin area, our outreach team regularly travels to more rural communities such as Bastrop, Marble Falls, and Giddings to provide services and speak with local community groups and train social service providers and members of law enforcement.
