Since Terra Firma's inception in 2013, our goal has been to promote health, well-being, and advocacy through our medical-legal partnership. To date, our program has expanded to support groups, case management, and a number of enrichment programs that empower immigrant children and their sponsors to succeed and reach their full potential.
