High costs related with the application process, including the application fee, $680 .
Lack of knowledge of the process and requirements.
Lack of access to English and U.S history classes
Unscrupulous attorneys and paralegals who take advantage of them seeking assistance.
We are looking for a small group of volunteers in order to help us with strategic public relations in order to find one time or anual donors in our community. The origin of income in the organization is from goverment grants, organizations and daily office low cost services. Donations from private donors are really poor. Because of our daily activity is with low income families it is hard for us to connect with wealthy bussiness or people.Also our staff is very limited. Our goal is to hire a full time attorney and another paralegal. Actually we are working hard to develope the educational program.
On 2016 , we provided Immigration legal Services to 1,790 Immigrants and
we assisted 568 Immigrants to complete their Citizenship Naturalization Process.
