The Immigration Project is the primary nonprofit organization that provides immigration legal assistance to the 100,000 immigrants residing in Central and Southern Illinois. We are proud to serve this population because we believe that every individual, no matter where they were born or what their citizenship status is, can have a full life
in the United States.
Attorney Consultations on Immigration Issues
Our staff—all fluent in Spanish—offers free individual attorney consultations and evaluations on immigration issues. Topics include citizenship; assistance for victims of crimes, including domestic violence; family reunification; and the recent Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.
Serving Downstate Illinois in Seven Locations
We are the only regional provider operating on a rural service model. Our immigration attorneys and immigration specialists travel to meet with clients in seven regional locations. Without our programs, low-income immigrants in the region would struggle to obtain access to professional immigration assistance.
Helping Immigrants & Strengthening Communities
We are committed to helping immigrants so that they can reach their goals and have a better life for themselves and their families. We believe that immigrants are members of our community, and that helping all members of a community strengthens the entire community.
