We are committed to supporting activities that promote the civic involvement of refugee communities and build their self-sufficiency. This includes outreach to encourage participation in the US civic and political system, leadership development for refugee leaders, and cultivation of refugee-led initiatives and groups that help refugees meet their own needs. As community experts on refugees and resettlement, we also play a critical role in promoting public awareness of the stories, achievements, and assets refugees bring to our state.

Do you need immigration services?

The process of navigating the United States immigration system can be complicated. The Immigration Services team at New American Pathways provides low-cost or no-cost immigration legal services for refugees, asylees, Cuban-Haitian immigrants, victims of human trafficking and other low-income immigrants.

These services include applications for legal permanent residency and naturalization (U.S. citizenship), family petitions, travel documents, work permits, and replacement documents. We also assist many of our clients to request waivers of the application fees, allowing many to receive immigration benefits that would otherwise be unattainable.
