The Immigration Alliance is a national, collaborative effort that equips churches across the country to provide critical immigration legal services to under-resourced immigrants. We do this through cultivating relationships among immigrants and churches in order that the Church might become an epicenter of multi-national welcome and community.
The Immigration Alliance’s affiliated churches provide fair, trustworthy immigration legal counsel to immigrants including:
- low-cost legal counseling on immigration-related matters;
- support in determining eligibility for immigration benefits;
- assistance in preparing applications for legal immigration status;
- immigration support to victims of crime and domestic violence; and
- assistance in reuniting families.
These church-based sites, as well as their volunteers and staffs, go through a rigorous accreditation process through the federal Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA).
With more than 22 million foreign-born, non-citizens in the United States – and with only 12,000 private immigration attorneys and 2,800 non-profit immigration attorneys and accredited staff in the United States to help meet the demand – the need for honest and trustworthy legal services has never been greater.
The Immigration Alliance provides local churches with best-in-class training to prepare churches to serve immigrants, coordinates and oversees efforts to ensure quality and consistency, and shares resources to maximize our effectiveness and reach.theimmigrationalliance.org
