Many UUFR members are familiar with the US Committee on Refugees and Immigrants (USCRI)’s role in refugee resettlement. However, the Raleigh office offers many more services to refugees and immigrants than just resettlement. You may donate to USCRI online here. In Raleigh, USCRI attorneys assist families by defending their rights, promoting self-sufficiency, and forging community partnerships and, through grants and donations, can offer low-cost legal services, including:
- representing persons seeking naturalization, asylum, immigration and consular processing;
- obtaining green cards, work authorization, and Self-Petitions for Battered Spouses and Children;
- helping persons seeking Temporary Protective Status (TPS), victims of human trafficking, and persons facing potential removal (deportation) back to unsafe homelands.
