Cabrini Immigrant Services of NYC, Inc.
New York, United States
Sponsored by the Missionary Sisters of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, Cabrini Immigrant Services (CIS) of NYC, Inc. is a not-for-profit tax exempt corporation funded almost exclusively by donations and grants. The office is accredited by the Bureau of Immigration Appeals to provide immigration legal services and thus provides free family based immigration and citizenship services. Additionally, the office provides case management, advocacy, and educational workshops surrounding issues of immigrant access to higher education, health care, rights in the public school system, and immigration law. CIS has a strong community organizing component and works with community members, parishes, national and local organizations, and elected officials to fight for social justice issues that affect the immigration community, most notably just and humane immigration reform.
