CLINIC Immigrant Integration manager Leya Speasmaker’s newest blog encourages citizens to embrace newcomers in their neighborhood and host gatherings in their homes. This allows families, children especially, to learn and grow as they get to know cultures different from their own.

Project Hope, based in Archbold, Ohio, provides professional legal services and educates immigrants about their rights and responsibilities of living in the United States. The organization's mission is to support immigrant integration and, as its name implies, give hope to immigrant families working and living in northwest Ohio (and beyond).

CLINIC congratulates Bishop Robert McElroy on his installation as the sixth bishop of the Diocese of San Diego! 

As we pray for Bishop McElroy today, we recall his leadership regarding immigrant integration in the Archdiocese of San Francisco and look forward to his ministry as shepherd of San Diego’s 98 parishes in Imperial and San Diego Counties.

The Hispanic Interest Coalition of Alabama (HICA!), the brain-child of Executive Director, Isabel Rubio, opened its doors in 1999. Ms. Rubio, a long time Birmingham resident, recognized the need for an immigrant-integration focused organization in the state of Alabama, and she has worked hard to ensure that immigrant integration is the cornerstone of their mission and the primary goal of all of their services.

Since its inception two hundred years ago, the story of the Archdiocese of New York is an immigrant story – a tradition which continues today. For more than 30 years, the Archdiocese of New York has provided services to the foreign-born, including refugee resettlement and immigration legal services, through Catholic Charities Community Services (CCCS). As the immigrant and refugee population in the area has grown and changed, so has CCCS.

Immigrant integration is a joint effort between newcomers and the receiving society to create a new community that reflects the needs and wants of everyone.

There’s no question that the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program has touched the lives of thousands of young people and, in turn, continues to inspire activism for immigration reform, transcending communities to inform federal action. At CLINIC, we are moved by the journeys of so many DREAMers. One such inspirational young woman is Denia Perez, the nation’s first Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA) accredited DREAMer.
