Immigration Legal Services
The path to legal immigration status for refugees, separated families, and potential new citizens is exceedingly complex, fraught with numerous hurdles and frequent changes. Access to affordable legal services continues to fall woefully short of meeting the demand, despite the fact that many are unable to navigate this path on their own and can even face detrimental consequences if they do.
As a result, many immigrants in the U.S. today live in fear and isolation, unable to truly rebuild a sense of home or belonging in the US.
But together, we can help.
