Immigration Legal Services (ILS), a part of Catholic Charities’ Newcomer Network, focuses on the provision of direct legal immigration services to foreign-born individuals and their families. Last year, we worked with more than 4,400 cases, ranging from consultations to full representation.  ILS has represented individuals from more than 135 countries around the world needing legal assistance with an immigration matter.  ILS also focuses on training lawyers to provide pro bono services and educating community groups on the latest immigration issues.
