ILAP is proud to fight for THE RIGHTS OF Maine's immigrants.


As Maine’s only state-wide immigration legal services organization, ILAP helps immigrants improve their legal status and advocates for more just and humane laws and policies.

With this support, immigrants in Maine are able to achieve safety and stability for themselves and their families, access educational and employment opportunities, build networks of support, and become powerful advocates for social justice in their communities.



ILAP helps Maine's immigrants keep their families together, gain protection from persecution and domestic violence, attain residency and work authorization, and become proud U.S. citizens.


See Our Impact

ILAP’s comprehensive legal services benefit thousands of Mainers each year, including members of the state’s immigrant communities, their families and their U.S. citizen neighbors.


Get Involved

ILAP is grateful to our many volunteers and interns, without whom our work would not be possible. We offer a variety of opportunities for volunteers to gain experience and build skills while helping Maine's immigrant community.
