Resources for Immigrants

Apr 3, 2017 |

Following the recent executive orders on immigration, we have seen a rise in fear and anxiety from our immigrant clients. We have stepped up efforts to provide legal guidance, testified at City Council meetings, and reaffirmed that we are a welcoming and safe space for all.

Below, we've put together a list of resources for individuals and families that have questions or concerns about immigration rights and need additional assistance. Please share this with those in need. Together, we will make a difference in the lives of the people we work with throughout New York City.
