Engaged Citizens Program

Focused on helping immigrants obtain their best immigration status available to them through quality, reliable and affordable immigration legal services. Mano a Mano is recognized by the Department of Justice as a Board of Immigration Appeals, authorized to provide immigration legal services without the presence of an attorney through our Accredited Representatives.

Engaged Citizens Program Initiatives include:

  • Immigration Legal Services: providing affordable and trustworthy application processing for administrative processes adjudicated by the US Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS).  Application processes supported include: naturalization, deferred action for childhood arrivals (DACA), green card renewals, and re-inscriptions for Temporary Protected Status (TPS).  Mano a Mano provides one-on-one case management and support through these complex processes;
  • Outreach & Education: keeping the community up to date in the latest happenings in the immigration world, including any new laws or fraud alerts; 
  • CALA Legal Clinic: in conjunction with CALA (a Chicago-based legal clinic), providing full legal representation before USCIS and the Department of Justice for complicated immigration cases, including: naturalization, U-visas, asylum petitions, and deportation defense.

To schedule an initial appointment for your case, call 847-201-1521.
