We offer services in-house, but we also get out into the community to make sure folks all across Chicago have access to the resources and support they need. By partnering with fellow organizations and civic institutions in the city and suburbs, we're able to expand our reach.
So whether you're eligible to become a U.S. citizen and would like to take the next step toward naturalization or want to equip yourself and your family with knowledge about your rights, we can help you.
Our citizenship workshops offer you one-on-one support with a trained volunteer to help you prepare your documents and complete the USCIS application for naturalization. Immigration attorneys are also available at these workshops to answer questions and give free advice. Please bring all necessary documentation and a money order to cover the cost of your application fee.
It's especially important that you know your rights in case of an interaction with Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) or local police. Through our Community Navigators program, we offer Know Your Rights workshops where you can learn what to do in a variety of different situations. We can also help you build an emergency plan so your family and belongings are safe and secure should you ever face detention and/or deportation.
