Launch an IC Site
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
