How we help individual immigrants

How we help individual immigrants

We work for the many diverse communities of Boston. Through meetings and surveys, we find out the concerns of the City’s immigrants and refugees. We also make sure they have access to the resources they need.

FIND IMMIGRATION LEGAL INFORMATION

Come to an immigration clinic at Boston City Hall to get free one-on-one information about immigration law from volunteer lawyers:

1 City Hall Square, Room 806
Boston, MA 02201

Volunteer lawyers are available on the first and third Wednesday of every month from 12 p.m. - 2 p.m.

Immigration Clinic Schedule 2016  |  En Español

First-come, first-served (there are no appointments). Please call at least 1 week in advance for interpretations (other than Spanish) and/or disability accommodations.

The volunteer lawyers can only offer information for 15-20 minutes.

OTHER LEGAL SERVICES

If you need legal representation, the Massachusetts Legal Aid Websites Project has pages for Finding Legal Aid (free or low-cost) and Lawyer Referral Services for all areas of law. If you need more help finding legal services, you can call us at 617-635-2980.

WHERE TO LEARN ENGLISH

Find English classes in your neighborhood. There are over 50 programs across the City.

Search the directory. For a statewide listing, use the Massachusetts Adult Literacy Hotline.

GROUPS THAT CAN HELP

There are hundreds of community organizations that work with immigrants, refugees, and newcomers. Find what you need through our online database.

GET IMMIGRATION UPDATES

We also push out information to strengthen and empower communities. We share updates — including new immigration laws and proposed policies — through our newsletter and other publications.
