Mission Statement

Over the years, hundreds of thousands of people have been forced to leave their countries of origin seeking refuge from desperate conditions. During these difficult times, people have looked to HIAS Chicago to be helped one by one, family by family. Since 1911, HIAS Chicago has been a leader in the community, assisting people through the immigration process. Through its caring, knowledgeable staff and proud partnership with Jewish Child & Family Services, HIAS Chicago helps Jewish people and others in need seek shelter in America.

Description

HIAS Chicago offers a broad spectrum of pre-and post-migration services including providing assistance with consular authorities and U.S. Immigration and Naturalization Service, helping clients understand the U.S. immigration laws and procedures and locating long lost friends and family members. In addition, the program actively advocates for the rights of refugees and immigrants on national, state and local levels and educates the public about the benefits immigrants bring to our community.
