Assist Immigrants & Refugees
Catholic Charities began providing immigration assistance during World War II, when refugees sought safety on American shores. Today, most clients seeking immigration services are coming from Afghanistan, Central America, Iran, Iraq, Mexico and Syria.
Services are structured to assist newly-arrived immigrants in learning English, obtaining education, navigating legal matters and training for jobs that will provide, at least, a living wage. American social norms are taught as well. These programs have a proven track record of helping immigrants transition and contribute to society.
