Immigration Clinic & Resources

On Thursday, July 19th, the New Jersey Reentry Corporation (NJRC) hosted an Immigration Clinic that brought together Immigrant Rights attorneys and experts to provide court involved persons within the immigrant community with legal resources. Throughout the evening, panelists thoroughly discussed immigration enforcement and the law; health, finance, and social services; identification and state action; and children, family, and visitation. The Clinic’s keynote speaker Ravi Ragbir shared his encounter with ICE and went on to discussed immigrant rights and the importance of knowing them. The community presence was both vast and humbling,  and we look forward to continue to provide the resources our community needs most.

Pablo’s Success Story

Our client Pablo stopped in to thank us for helping him to obtain his birth certificate from the Dominican Republic and his identification card. Pablo completed our orientation program last week and has already found employment. “This program is wonderful,” he said. “It helps you do all the things you need to begin when you are on your own.”

A Visit with Our Client, Krista

It was great to see our client, Krista, who stopped by today to say hello. We’re so glad she’s doing well! She completed our orientation program last year and secured employment at a trucking company shortly after. She has been employed at the same company since, where she works as a logistics coordinator. She has been able to secure her own apartment as well.

“This program helped me in so many ways,” she said. “Help is available if you want to put in the effort. They helped me with welfare and employment connections; it’s hard to find employment opportunities on your own. I learned how to present myself during job interviews as well. Ms. Muhammad was a great emotional support and provided wonderful advice.”

Gabriella’s First Day of Work

Best wishes to our client, Gabriella, on her new job today as a call center representative at a real estate agency! She completed our orientation program last month. “My advice to others in this program is to speak up. I used to deal with a lot of pride and didn’t ask for help,” she said. “The employees here really care. They push you to do your best. Ms. Muhammad was my case manager; I love how raw she is… She and Cherina [in HR] at the front desk were always so helpful.”
