Rural Immigration Legal Services

Campaign created 2 months ago
Support smart, long-term strategies for serving our immigrant communities in Nebraska.
 
Please help us to reach rural Nebraskans to provide crucial legal services through our Immigration Legal Services Mobile Clinic. Your donation will support our legal staff reaching out to communities of immigrants without access to these legal services such as O’Neill, Royal and West Point, Nebraska. The staff will meet with immigrants in secure locations available to us for free, such as Church basements, libraries, and community centers. Your donation today makes it possible for us to serve the most vulnerable populations in our state and country.

With your support, we can provide the needed guidance to our new neighbors. According an August 12, 2018 Omaha World-Herald article , immigrant workers are the new ‘life blood’ of our workforce as Baby Boomers retire, populations decline in rural areas, and low unemployment rates make job applicants scarce. Your contributions will go directly to the staff of Catholic Charities Immigration Legal Services. They will reach out to small rural communities that lack legal services such as O’Neill, Royal and West Point, Nebraska, as well as continuing to serve Omaha. 

We are here to support our immigrant communities for the long haul!

Overview of Our Program

Catholic Charities Immigration Legal Services (CC-ILS) Mobile Clinic serves our neighbors throughout Omaha and 23 counties in northeast Nebraska under the Archdiocese of Omaha. We will bring legal services to immigrants who are not able to come to us.

Our program provides low-income citizens and lawful permanent residents an opportunity to exercise the legal benefits afforded to them by the United States. Outcomes from our work include: (a) advancing people’s immigration status, unifying and strengthening foreign-born and native-born families, (b) increasing the number of young workers in the country, (c) increasing the number of U.S. Citizens eligible to vote, and (d) empowering immigrant victims of domestic violence and other crimes to seek benefits available to them under federal immigration law.
 
Help us serve well.
 
Please help us to reach rural Nebraskans to provide crucial legal services through our Immigration Legal Services Mobile Clinic. Your donation will support our legal staff reaching out to communities of immigrants who are without access to these legal services. Led by the example of Jesus Christ, we will be the most compassionate source of help and hope for those in need. God and Family will visibly be valued, honored, and promoted. We will minister works of mercy to all who call upon us, and provide resources and guidance to those seeking self-sufficiency.

Thank you.
