Researcher working with immigrants and refugees
13 people are interested
Researchers assist legal consultants by finding answers to specific policy or process questions, finding forms online, sometimes making copies or filling out forms for clients. Often it is helpful for the legal consultant and researcher to put their heads together to find the best way to address the concerns that clients bring. The researcher is part of a team of three at the clinic; each team also has a translator and legal consultant when fully staffed. We divide the day into three shifts; 12-2, 2-4, and 4-7. The best way to get into volunteering is to visit us for an hour or two during a Wednesday clinic in Southwest Detroit. After you’ve gotten a taste for the clinic setting and filled out a volunteer application, we can get you on the schedule for a future date.
About SOUTHWEST DETROIT IMMIGRANT AND REFUGEE CENTER
17375 Harper Ave, Suite 24124, Detroit, MI 48224, US
The Southwest Detroit Immigrant and Refugee Center provides free and low-cost legal services to underserved communities in the Detroit area, with a focus on recent immigrants and refugees.
Despite their growing presence in Detroit, immigrants and refugees here have difficulty obtaining affordable legal services, housing, and assistance in establishing businesses. The Southwest Detroit Immigrant and Refugee Center helps meets these needs . . . one family at a time.
We have three core mission priorities:
1. Provide low cost legal services to immigrants and refugees seeking to make a home in the city of Detroit;
2. Offer low-cost housing to immigrants and refugees who have difficulty finding long-term residences in the city of Detroit; and
3. Assist businesses owned by Detroit residents (from disadvantaged communities) unable to find capital due to their inexperience, need for professional support, and/or immigration status.
We'll work with your schedule.
