Holiday Wish 2019

by Human Rights Initiative of North Texas, Inc

The holiday season is right around the corner and you know what that means – 

it's time for Holiday Wish!

Human Rights Initiative would like to invite you to help bring joy and relief to our families this year by participating in our Holiday Wish Program. Since 2007, we have been able to assist over 1,500 individuals and with your help, we can continue to support our families in experiencing a festive and warm holiday season.

As many of you know, celebrating the holidays in the U.S. is often a new experience for many of HRI’s clients, all of whom have experienced trauma or severe violence in their lives. For some, celebrations are bittersweet as clients spend the holiday season separated from loved ones. For others, they simply can’t afford to celebrate or purchase presents for their children. By adopting a family or donating, you will help to fill these families’ homes with cheer and the holiday spirit.


Please help us share the warmth and happiness of the season by joining us in this program of giving. Thank you for your generosity!

Deadline: All donations must be received by Thursday, November 21, 2019 so that gifts can be bought, wrapped, and distributed to our clients in time for the holidays. 

If you would like to adopt a family and purchase their gifts yourself, please contact Sahil at the address below. Thank you for spreading joy!


If you have any questions or need further information, please contact HRI's 

Social Services Director, Sahil Gilani, at (214) 855-0520 ext. 4335 or at

About Human Rights Initiative of North Texas

Founded by social worker Serena Simmons Connelly and lawyer Elizabeth Healy, the Dallas-based Human Rights Initiative of North Texas has grown into an award-winning agency helping immigrant survivors of human rights abuses from all over the world. Our courageous and resilient clients are eligible to apply for legal status under the humanitarian provisions of United States immigration laws and policies: they are asylum seekers fleeing persecution; children who have been abandoned, abused, or neglected; and victims of family violence and violent crimes. HRI’s Legal team partners with a network of almost 300 pro bono attorneys from top DFW firms and corporations to help clients access the U.S. Immigration System, and our Social Services team offers transitional support and referrals to help address trauma and ease the hardships of profound displacement. At HRI, all of our services are free, and all are designed to help forge a path to safety, stability, and opportunity. For more information, visit
