Catholic Charities of Orange County (CCOC)

Catholic Charities of Orange County (CCOC) is doing an excellent job to build capacity and integrate immigrants into the community in Orange County. This beautiful area on the Southern California coast is very diverse and home to almost one million immigrants. Orange County has one of the highest immigrant populations of any county in the United States. Unfortunately, Orange County is also sorely lacking in immigration legal services and many immigrants in Orange County are not able to access immigration legal assistance.  

Kitsap Immigrant Assistance Center (KIAC)

Kitsap Immigrant Assistance Center (KIAC) fulfills a dire need for immigration legal services in the West Puget Sound, a lowland area west of Seattle characterized by saltwater bays, islands, and peninsulas.  In this area, there are no other community-based organizations providing services to immigrants.  The West Puget Sound has an almost invisible immigrant population that largely goes unnoticed by service providers.  KIAC was founded in 2004 and since then has been working to assist immigrants in the West Puget Sound better their lives.
