Immigration Legal Services


A Path to Hope

Safely navigating the U.S. immigration legal system is fundamental for refugees and immigrants to rebuild their lives and regain a sense of belonging. But they face many complicated and expensive legal hurdles on the paths to citizenship and reuniting with family. Without access to professional legal services, they can face dire consequences. Our immigration team of attorneys fill this gap by offering high-quality, licensed legal services at low cost.

Support our work and provide an affordable path to hope by donating to our Legal Services Program.

I would not have made it without Elizabeth. She gave me the courage. She explained how everything works.
