Hand in Hand Immigration Services in Wenatchee, WA is a trusted place where immigrants can get accurate, up-to-date information on the citizenship process, and clarification of their particular requirements for citizenship. This is done by case workers certified by the Federal Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA). These case workers are trained by the BIA to give legal advice to immigrants and have all the necessary resources to guide eligible persons through the citizenship process. We offer classes in civics, prepare candidates to pass the citizenship test and interview, and assist in the completion of all paperwork requirements. We also work alongside the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) to coordinate Naturalization Ceremonies year round.
Immigration Resource Center of San Gabriel Valley (IRCSGV) exists to support the immigrant population in San Gabriel Valley by providing quality low-cost immigration legal services and referral services that consider the needs of the whole person. These services offer an affordable way for local foreign-born non-US citizens to comply with immigration law and contribute to the ability of individuals to provide for themselves and their families.
IRCSGV is an extension of Mountainside Communion and community partners.
In 2006, ICCompassion was established as a faith-based 501c 3 nonprofit organization. Our mission is to engage culturally diverse communities together through hope, opportunities and partnerships. Together we equip people at their point of need to move out of poverty and inspire them to be of service to others. With awareness of the need for low cost legal immigration services in our community, in 2011, ICCompassion became recognized by the Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA). Teresa Stecker became its first accredited representative providing legal immigration assistance with clients in Johnson County and surrounding counties including Cedar, Linn, Iowa, Muscatine, Washington and Scott.
