Who We Are

Embracing the Gospel value of welcoming the stranger, CLINIC promotes the dignity and protects the rights of immigrants in partnership with a dedicated network of Catholic and community legal immigration programs.

Featured Campaign: text4refugees

CLINIC’s text4refugees project is an innovative effort to reach more refugees and asylees in a unique way – through their cell phones. Refugees, asylees and anyone interested in learning more about citizenship will benefit from our monthly text messages about the citizenship application process.

This project is funded by the Office of Refugee Resettlement.

The Story of Us Documentary

CLINIC affiliates in Salt Lake City were featured in a documentary made for The Visionaries, an award-winning PBS-TV series.

The documentary, entitled The Story of Us, can play an important role in being a positive voice on immigration, which is so vital these days.
