Low-cost Immigration Legal Services
In 2019 we launched low-cost immigration related legal services in partnership with the Immigrant Connection. Twice a week our Department of Justice accredited legal representative visits our office to offer limited legal consult to IWC clients. Initial consultations cost $40.00 and are made by appointment only, on Mondays and Fridays.

Throughout the year we host several large citizenship workshops that provide FREE legal assistance to Lawful Permanent Residents (LPRs) who are ready to begin their journey towards becoming naturalized U.S. Citizens. Our aim is to help naturalize as many LPRs across Indianapolis and Marion County as possible. This work is made possible by a grant from the National Partnership for New Americans and a generous gift from Deborah J. Simon.

Beginning in February 2020 we will begin piloting our own series of citizenship classes. These classes will be open to Lawful Permanent Residents (LPRs) who are eligible to apply for citizenship and will cost $20.00, which includes an interactive workbook. Once enrolled, students will receive mentorship, exam practice and lessons, mock interview practice, and a certification of completion.

Natural Helpers Program
Our Natural Helpers program is our most intensive volunteer opportunity. These lead volunteers help our immigrant and refugee neighbors with their transition to life in Indianapolis. Natural Helpers are immigrants themselves who understand the challenges of moving to a new place, learning a new language, finding employment, and establishing a home in the United States.
