Immigrant and Refugee Services

Starting a new life begins with connecting to the community.

Washington, D.C., is home to a thriving and vibrant community of immigrants from around the world. Many come to America with the dream of starting over and building a better life. Others flee violence and the fear of death, seeking asylum and safety. We offer immigration legal services, case management as they work to overcome barriers to stability, connections to employment and language services.
