Hispanic Immigrant Accompaniment

Save to Favorites

Centreville Immigration Forum

  • 6 people are interested

The Centreville Immigration Forum is in need of several persons to assist our members (largely Indigenous People from Guatemala) in medical, school, and legal appointments. This accompaniment has several aspects: completing forms for financial aid; assisting with school registration (both of these require having statement of income and proof of residency). All of this needs to be explained to the applicant, and even though the forms themselves are in Spanish, the requirements themselves are difficult for folks to understand and complete. We are looking for volunteers who are comfortable doing this kind of work via telephone interview (most of the telephone interviews need to be done in the evening, when our members are not working or looking for work).
We also do actual accompaniment to court appointments or to ICE check-ins (all of which have have been postponed for months or years because of the pandemic); and some accompaniment to medical appointments These letter two activities require day-time availability.
If interested, please go to our website (centrevilleimmigrationforum.org), click on "volunteer," click on "intake form (printed in red)," fill it out, click on "submit," it will come to me

About Centreville Immigration Forum

Location:

5944 Centreville Crest Lane, Centreville, VA 20121, US

Mission Statement

The mission of the Centreville Immigration Forum (CIF) is to implement sustainable programs that provide immigrants in need with the means to improve their lives and become more integrated into the community; improve communication and cooperation among groups serving immigrants; and build community recognition of our strength in diversity. All of our programs include workers in leadership and decision-making and support the self-sufficiency of low-income immigrants.

Description

The Centreville Labor Resource Center (CLRC), a safe place where CLRC members and employers meet to discuss fair wages and terms of employment. As a nonprofit, we are not interested in profits, but rather in maximizing our impact on the community. We work to provide community members with the work opportunities that allow members to be financially independent and to sustain themselves and their families as cost of living continues to rise.

In addition to the facilitation of employment agreements, the CLRC provides skills training, English classes, other educational opportunities, and referral and other services to members.

The Centreville Commission for Labor Justice was formed to fight, prevent, and ultimately end wage theft in the greater Centreville area. The commission is a project of the Centreville Immigration Forum, led by a Committee of workers, volunteers, small business owners and CIF staff. The CCLJ complements the work of the Centreville Labor Resource Center by assisting community members in negotiating with employers who have refused to pay their wages owed.
