Catholic Charities of Central Texas
Family Based Immigration Legal Services
Catholic Charities of Central Texas works to strengthen families by meeting the needs of the most vulnerable members of our community. Their Immigration Legal Services program provides legal assistance at minimal cost to individuals and families eligible to apply for immigration benefits, with a focus on family reunification. Impact Austin funds will provide an additional staff member to help 150 more clients and will allow for the expansion of service hours from three to four weeks per month. The grant will also provide technology equipment to increase efficiency and eliminate paper files. With the support from Impact Austin, Catholic Charities will expand its reach by presenting workshops in surrounding counties where low cost immigration services are not available.
