Catholic Legal Services and the Florida Immigrant Advocacy Center have organized clinics—and FIU has begun providing law students, faculty, staff and alumni--to help undocumented Haitians fill out the proper paperwork that would allow them to legally live and work in the United States on a temporary basis.

Within days of the creation of the American Red Cross LGBT Haiti Relief Fund, a Red Cross representative stated the fund has already raised more money than many of the huge corporate donors. This was accomplished by significant outreach efforts to the LGBT community via donors and activists along with a massive email campaign to the members of three LGBT cruise companies, Olivia, Atlantis and RSVP. Within a week, the community has raised over $150,000 for the fund.
