Fund for Immigration Legal Assistance (FILA)

First UU affirms and promotes the inherent worth and dignity of every person. As an outreach to and with the larger community, we have established a Fund for Immigration Legal Assistance (FILA) to provide direct assistance to immigrants in Central Ohio in need of help.

Beneficiaries of the fund are residents of Central Ohio, with preference given to parent(s) of underage children, and young persons who fit within the DACA age guidelines.

The fund welcomes donations from the larger community. Fund raising for FILA will occur both within First UU, as well as in the central Ohio community. Your donations are most appreciated.

If you are interested in hosting a fund raiser, please contact us at:
