There are more than eight million lawful permanent residents in the United States who are qualified to become U.S. Citizens. Our mission is to assist them by helping prepare them and removing barriers to becoming citizens. We offer immigration workshops, classes to help them prepare for the citizenship test, attorney consultations and assistance with fee waivers.
We believe that education is the best way to enable people's advancement, so we provide programs to help families of youth at the secondary education level address the issues to ensure successful education. These include life skills classes for parents, enabling them to help their children adapt to our changing society and be successful in school and in life.
Once lawful permanent residents become U.S. Citizens, we help them integrate into the U.S. by empowering them to vote and be active in their community. We provide the immigrant community with information about recent immigration issues. We work in family preparedness to inform them of their rights and provide presentations about TPS and DACA. We also work with sister organizations to connect immigrants with resources regarding issues we are not able to address.
