Make a Difference
Over 40% of our total revenue was severed by state budget cuts affecting funding for the Citizenship, ACA, and IFRP programs.
Providing assistance to our community
Our current services focus on family unity, civic engagement, community resources awareness and advocacy.
HACES ensures that every immigrant that walks through its doors gets accurate and useful information that enables them to build successful lives.
In the USA, 11 million adults and children live in the shadows because they lack the legal documentation to fully participate in the American life. Through HACES immigration program, families are helped with their applications to begin the legalization process which includes the completion of forms, case and waiver preparation and representation with the office of Citizenship and Immigration Services.
