National Migration Week

Tuesday, January 7, 2020


This week is National Migration Week. Each year, hundreds of thousands of immigrants and refugees enter the United States seeking a better life for themselves and, often, their families. Once in the country, these individuals face linguistic, cultural, economic and legal challenges.

It is our goal to help these migrants overcome barriers and adjust to their new lives in the United States by providing an array of support services including Refugee Resettlement, Community Interpreter Services, Immigration Legal Services, Employment services and ESOL classes.

During National Migration Week, and every week, we like to keep this quote in mind:

Loving our neighbor as ourselves means being firmly committed to building a more just world, in which everyone has access to the goods of the earth, in which all can develop as individuals and as families, and in which fundamental rights and dignity are guaranteed to all.” – Pope Francis
