Citizenship and Legal Services (Hogar Immigrant Services)

Hogar Immigrant Services' goal is to help newcomers become self-sufficient and productive members of American society by offering a combination of legal immigration consultation and representation, English-language instruction, other adult education programs, workforce development training, naturalization assistance, and bilingual community education.

Citizenship Services

Naturalization is the process of becoming a citizen. Hogar Immigrant Services’ Citizenship and Naturalization Program includes TWO services for those interested in becoming a citizen- Citizenship Application Assistance and Citizenship Interview Preparation.*

*Classes are in English only, so they are a great way to improve your English conversation skills as well.

We are continually offering new classes!
