Tree of Life Immigration Legal Aid Clinic
Tree of Life Immigration Legal Aid Clinic is a ministry of Tree of Life Anglican Church and the Anglican Immigration Ministries. The goal of this legal aid ministry is to assist low-income immigrants in filing government documents that will allow them to work lawfully, or let their families reunite and/or stay together, or help them become citizens. We also raise awareness in the wider community about the needs of our immigrant neighbors.
