The Immigration Legal Services department at Catholic Charities of Louisville provides legal assistance and counseling to low- and moderate-income immigrants and refugees. As part of our mission to “welcome the stranger,” we strive to help foreign-born individuals facing obstacles to family unity and/or diminished personal, social and economic opportunities as a result of their immigration status.
Our staff provides a wide range of services, including assistance with naturalization and citizenship, permanent residency, representation in removal cases, and employment authorization. ILS provides, on average, 90 appointments to new clients each month. The program has helped reunite spouses by assisting in the green card process, helping residents receive appropriate documentation for employment and aiding those looking to become contributing members of their community regardless of their legal status.
