On October 7, 2015, The Immigration Project opened its new office doors in Normal to the community for tours, games, and refreshments. The Immigration Project recently moved from its location in Bloomington, Illinois to Normal in late July. It has been about 7 years since the last big move from Granite City to Bloomington. Although the new office is physically smaller, the space allows for more security and attorney-client privacy.
A mixture of clients, donors, and community members attended the Open House to meet the staff and board members. Light refreshments were donated by La Bamba, Ropp Cheese, Kroger, Hy-Vee, and Jewel-Osco. Additionally, the landlord, Matt Summers, gave permission to use the vacant, next-door suite to help accommodate for the number of visitors.
