Launch an IC Site

1
Assessment
Your team fills out the assessment form and Immigrant Connection joins your team on a call to discuss the process and specifics related to immigration legal services (ILS) and your specific church and context.
2
Learning
Specific individuals (1-2) on your team will get training in immigration law and program management; at the same time, your whole church will learn about a Biblical perspective on immigrants through online cohorts, small group curriculm, and sermons.
3
Experience
The same individuals (1-2) will continue on to "shadowing" - gaining firsthand experience in ILS and program management. The church and other leaders will continue their own learning and connecting with immigrants and community partners.
4
Application
Working with World Relief and IC, your team will create and submit your application for Site Recognition and Representative Accreditation to the DOJ and USCIS.
5
Launch
After your application is approved, your site can begin accepting clients, giving legal advice, and working on immigration cases. As a part of the IC Legal Network, you will receive continued guidance through network calls & conferences.
