about RAICES Texas
Founded in 1986 as the Refugee Aid Project by community activists in South Texas, RAICES has grown to be the largest immigration legal services provider in Texas. With offices in Austin, Corpus Christi, Dallas, Fort Worth, Houston and San Antonio, RAICES is a frontline organization in the roiling debate about immigration and immigrants in the world. As an organization that combines expertise developed from the daily practice of immigration law with a deep commitment to advocacy, RAICES is unique among immigration organizations. A diverse staff of 240 attorneys, legal assistants, social workers, advocates, and support staff provide consultations, direct legal services, representation, assistance and advocacy to communities in Texas and to clients after they leave the state. In 2017, RAICES staff closed 51,000 cases at no cost to the client. Our advocacy and commitment to change are driven by the clients and families we serve every day as our attorneys and legal assistants provide legal advocacy and representation in an immigration system that breaks apart families and leaves millions without pathways to legal status.
creator, founder and designer. nichole moss aka mrs.jones believes that this is what 50 looks like: a woman who believes in women, a cancer survivor, mom, wife and lover of air force one’s and vans. known for her her "get you stopped in the street" dresses, STATEMENT PIECE is vision of how she can help and use her vision to help others and be unapologetic about how she and many other women are feeling today.
motivated to create not collections but stand-alone pieces that women crave and can’t wait to put on in the morning and wear all day dresses and sweaters that will for sure get you stopped in the street. inspired by her travels, and her careers in the music business working for the source magazine and island def jam to the iconic halls of calvin klein collection, mrs.jones has purposely mastered creating a “where did you get that” moment with a classic aesthetic.
Her love of statement dresses will return soon.
