CWS began its journey of assisting refugees and immigrants during the aftermath of World War II. That commitment to serving immigrants has stayed with us over the decades. We can look back and see the great contributions that refugees and immigrants have made to our communities, and we are emboldened by their own resilience and hope for a new life.
Today, CWS honors the courage shown by immigrants by providing legal services at local offices throughout the U.S. We are there to help immigrants start new chapters in their lives. Our attorneys can assist in the filing of applications for naturalization, green cards and citizenship. We also assist in many other types of status as well as waivers, exemptions and applications.
We have over 21 offices throughout the U.S. that offer various legal services to immigrants, refugees and asylum seekers. In many communities we also participate in immigration clinics at local churches and group processing events in partnership with other community-based organizations.
