ROAD TO CITIZENSHIP

In 2018, we helped over 300 refugees with various immigration needs. Refugees are required to apply for green cards after being in the US for one year and then can apply for citizenship after five years. We also have assisted many asylees. We help refugees replace lost green cards or work authorization cards. We are recognized by the Department of Justice to provide these legal immigration services.
