Founded in 2016, the Asylum Seeker Assistance Project (ASAP) is the only organization dedicated to serving asylum seekers and their families living in the D.C. Metro region. We employ an interdisciplinary service model that combines social work, employment, and community engagement services to promote individual self-sufficiency. ASAP provides holistic services that are not available by any other community agency in our region. Today, ASAP serves as a critical organization providing asylum seekers with information, resources, services, and hope.
In less than two years of operation, ASAP’s client base has expanded by nearly 60%, our staff continues to grow, and we’ve increased our active funding partners from zero to seven. The reason behind ASAP’s success is simple: our commitment to the courageous individuals we serve has never waivered.
