Supporting immigrants and refugees

CWS has a commitment to serving the most vulnerable in our world. In the U.S. that often means those within our own communities who live in the shadows, afraid to step out into the light for fear of deportation, discrimination or worse. Our immigration programs in the U.S. focus on helping individuals to realize their dreams of legal status and also support them while they undergo that process. This involves teams of attorneys and accredited representatives who help keep families together.

Attorneys and accredited representatives assist immigrants with applications for citizenship, green cards and more.
