You Did It for Me



82-year-old Ida* came to the U.S. in 1989 on a VISA status. She worked as a housekeeper for three decades. Years ago a lawyer told Ida that he could help her gain citizenship. He charged $2500. Ida paid, but she never heard from the lawyer again. Ida was afraid of being deported. One Sunday, Ida read in a church bulletin that Catholic Charities had an immigration services office. She made an appointment. The case manager explained everything and walked Ida through the whole citizenship application process. Today she is a citizen.

In 2014 Catholic Charities agencies assisted 40,635 immigrants with family visa, citizenship and DACA applications, providing the opportunity for stability, reunification and permanency. To learn more, visit www.CatholicCharitiesUSA.org
