According to our Catholic faith, we believe that we are called by God to provide compassion. At the Hope Workers’ Center, we seek to meet this call through direct assistance by providing legal casework and shelter to migrant workers.
For workers who fear that their rights in the workplace may have been violated, we employ a staff of full-time caseworkers who are experts in Taiwan’s labor laws and passionate about defending the rights of workers. We recognize that the legal code in Taiwan can be daunting and we believe in upholding the rights of all people. Our caseworkers speak a variety of languages and will dedicate themselves to your case. If you believe that your rights have been violated, or if you have questions about how best to proceed in the legal system, please contact the Hope Workers’ Center.
For victims of workplace abuse or human trafficking, we provide a temporary-stay shelter. After the suffering that many workers have endured, we hope to provide a safe place for them to stay while they proceed with next steps either in search of new employment or in engaging with legal proceedings. Residents of our shelter stay free of charge and we will never require that residents come or profess a certain faith background–we provide places for people to worship according to the faith that they choose. In exchange for our services, we ask only that residents of our shelter follow our simple rules and take part in our prescribed daily classes and activities. If you are a victim of workplace abuse or human trafficking, please contact us immediately and we will work to support you.
