Immigration

Additional funding for immigration services would increase the resources of Local Catholic Charities organizations to ensure that unaccompanied minors and immigrants receive crucial services including trustworthy legal counsel, and whenever possible, the opportunity to obtain legal residence and citizenship.

  • With $180,000 in funding, Catholic Charities could expand these services to approximately 400 additional eligible immigrants.
  • With a mere $450, Catholic Charities can assist an eligible immigrant in completing the citizenship process, helping to ensure better access to education, employment, and healthcare.  
  • With a mere $250, Catholic Charities agencies can provide an unaccompanied undocumented minor with food to eat, safe shelter, and access to basic healthcare.
