Immigration Project - Donor Engagement Coordinator
The Immigration Project's mission is to provide high quality legal services to low income immigrant communities in 86 counties across central and southern Illinois. The main office is in Normal, IL with a small satellite office in Champaign, IL. Immigration Project attorneys and legal representatives represent individuals in the process to become U.S. citizens or prove their U.S. citizenship to the government. We also represent individuals in applications to obtain work authorization or lawful permanent residency in the United States and individuals seeking to bring family members to the US from countries all over the world. In addition, the Immigration Project represents survivors of trauma and violence in applications for visas, asylum, and residency. The Immigration Project also conducts outreach and education programs for both immigrant and non-immigrant communities including Know Your Rights presentations, legal information clinics, and Immigration 101 talks to non-immigrant communities. The program relies on legal representatives, administrative staff, 4 AmeriCorp VISTAs, and a large network of community volunteers working together to maximize the agency's resources.
