Immigration Community Outreach
Immigration Community Outreach (ICO) is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that primarily provides legal representation and essential support to immigrants pursuing legal citizenship in the United States of America. Our vision is for a nation that follows in the footsteps of our forefathers, embracing and welcoming all individuals seeking a better life for themselves and their families, including refugees and asylum seekers who seek safety from the perils of their homelands and yearn for stability in our country. Our mission also involves restoring the human dignity of these individuals. Given the ongoing challenges surrounding comprehensive immigration reform, we remain dedicated to being a steadfast catalyst for change within immigrant communities. We strive to ensure that immigrants have access to proper legal representation and social justice opportunities. ICO supports New Jersey's most vulnerable immigrant groups as part of our efforts to aid immigrants on their legal citizenship path. This includes individuals who have experienced or are currently facing domestic violence, those who are homeless or at risk of homelessness, and those who may resort to unlawful actions for basic survival due to their vulnerable circumstances.
