  • Mar 12, 2014: Widian's Story
    Mar 12, 2014: Raised in a tiny village in Galilee, my father, the eldest of 5 children, was raised by loving parents who made a meager living as poor farmers. My mother, who was raised in an orphanage from a young age by a community of Sisters in Jerusalem, married my father at seventeen. During my childhood, my father worked as a mechanic and my mother as a teacher. While our home was filled with love, my parents recognized that their children would have better opportunities for education, advancement, and success in the U.S.
  • Mar 8, 2014: Ministry to Victims of Domestic Abuse: CLINIC, Affiliates, and Partners Rise to the Call
    Mar 8, 2014: This is a very special time.  We find ourselves in the first week of Lent, recalling that Christ suffered for our sins and arose on the third day.  We also find ourselves marking the one year anniversary of the reauthorization of the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) on March 7th,  and International Women’s Day on March 8th. 
  • Mar 4, 2014: Lent 2014: Bearing Witness to Our Faith
    Mar 4, 2014: Diakonia - Although this word is certainly a familiar concept for CLINIC affiliates who are guided by a philosophy of selfless service, it was not until the Holy Father’s Lenten message that this word entered my vocabulary.   Diakonia, Pope Francis explains, is the universal call to “meet needs and bind the wounds which disfigure the face of humanity.”  As we embark on Ash Wednesday, I look to the Holy Father’s Lenten message to identify who and how I can help with my Lenten p
  • Feb 27, 2014: An Immigration Program Grows in Brooklyn
    Feb 27, 2014: Brooklyn is one of the nation’s most vibrant metropolitan areas with a dense and multi-ethnic population.  Its immigrant history is storied as in A Tree Grows in Brooklyn, an American literary classic. With a large foreign-born population there is a growing need for affordable immigration legal services specifically for people with low-incomes. For that reason, CLINIC, other nonprofit organizations, and immigrant advocates joined to start such a program in Brooklyn.

  • Feb 21, 2014: CLINIC’s Religious Immigration Services makes DREAMs Come True
    Feb 21, 2014: It has been more than a year since the Catholic Legal Immigration Network Inc.’s (CLINIC) Religious Immigration Services (RIS) section began taking Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) cases.  Back on June 15, 2012, the Department of Homeland Security announced a new process, granting relief to undocumented young people who came to the United States as children and do not have proper immigration documents.  This new program allowed these young people to have work authorization and stay in the country without the threat of deportation.
  • Feb 18, 2014: Silicon Valley Community Foundation and CLINIC Expand Service Delivery
    Feb 18, 2014: Although the successes of immigrant entrepreneurs in Silicon Valley’s technology industry are well known, the startling reality is that Silicon Valley’s legal support infrastructure cannot accommodate the high number of low-income immigrants in need of legal immigration services.  According to The Center for the Study of Immigrant Integration at the University of Southern California, 36% of the population of Sa
