The United States is a nation of immigrants. Unity is what we stand for as a country. When we help new immigrants become part of our culture, we make America a better place to live for everyone.

There are hundreds of organizations across the country that can help individuals and families with their immigration issues. In addition, these organizations can educate the public about the plights facing immigrants and their families. From answering basic questions about legal rights or status information, to helping people find an immigration attorney, these organizations connect people to important resources such as housing, health, education, and social services.

But, like all non-profit organizations, they need the help of citizens, both monetarily and physically, to make an impact. That’s where you can be of great service. Take a look at some of these important organizations and the work they do, and get involved.
