Community Colleges Project

The Program

The Community Colleges Project offers a unique opportunity for students, staff, and faculty at California’s Community Colleges to access personalized immigration legal services from highly qualified legal practitioners. UFW Foundation immigration attorneys and DOJ Accredited Representatives are available at local schools and offices to provide culturally-competent, trauma-informed, and reliable expertise to the campus community. We can service people in multiple languages, including English, Spanish, Mixteco and Mandarin; simply indicate your language preference.
