Jewish Vocational Service (JVS) Immigration Services seeks to help reunite families and strengthen their diverse community. Their program is accredited by the Department of Justice. Their bilingual (English/Spanish) immigration counselors work one-on-one with all refugees and immigrants to complete family-based immigration applications, applications to adjust to permanent resident status, and naturalization applications. They also assist with applying for some humanitarian-based immigration benefits. Their citizenship services provide assistance navigating the naturalization application process to elderly or disabled individuals, or individuals that have a medical condition which prevents them from learning the required material to pass the traditional naturalization exam.
