Client Emergency Fund

Asylum seekers are only eligible for work authorization once their case is won, or 180 days after applying with no decision. This means many survivors struggle with no resources and are unable to work in their first year of arrival. PTV’s Client Emergency Fund is set up to cover the basic needs of survivors when emergencies arise. These funds can cover anything from emergency transportation to appointments, medicine, eye exams and glasses, dental care, mattresses and bedding, food, clothing, and calling cards to family members back home.
