DIRE Support Services has received renewed funding for program year 2020 from United Way to continue its work supporting our communities’ most vulnerable residents, and has received increased funding to hire an immigration lawyer in 2020. This position will allow DIRE to create an Immigrant Legal Services program to both train and oversee volunteers under the DOJ’s Recognition and Accreditation Program, and serve some of the 400-500 immigration cases that will come through DIRE and its affiliate programs in 2020.

If you are a lawyer, paralegal, or volunteer who would like to become involved in this new initiative, please contact ChurchesImprovingCommunities@gmail.com for more information.
