Jewish Vocational Service
Jewish Vocational Service (JVS) Immigration Services seeks to help reunite families and strengthen their diverse community. Their program is accredited by the Department of Justice. Their bilingual (English/Spanish) immigration counselors work one-on-one with all refugees and immigrants to complete family-based immigration applications, applications to adjust to permanent resident status, and naturalization applications. They also assist with applying for some humanitarian-based immigration benefits. Their citizenship services provide assistance navigating the naturalization application process to elderly or disabled individuals, or individuals that have a medical condition which prevents them from learning the required material to pass the traditional naturalization exam.
