Join the Affiliate Network
CLINIC offers services on a yearly basis to its Catholic members and non-Catholic subscribers, who make up its network of non-profit legal services providers. Non-profit organizations that offer services to low-income and vulnerable immigrants are welcome to join CLINIC's affiliate network as a member or subscriber. CLINIC affiliates benefit from access to an array of services including extensive training and technical support on immigration program management and immigration law practice.
What Types Do You Offer?
CLINIC’s member agencies are Catholic-based nonprofits serving community needs, including immigration legal services. Subscribers in CLINIC’s network are non-Catholic nonprofits also providing immigration legal representation. Member agencies provide authorized immigration legal representation from attorneys and/or Department of Justice (DOJ) accredited representatives at the partial or full level. While hundreds of attorneys work in the network, the majority of staff are accredited representatives. Staff range in their years of legal experience, areas of expertise and non-English language options. Many are immigrants themselves. These individuals provide the bulk of the direct, charitable legal services to communities across the country.
CLINIC trains and supports member agency staff so that they can provide effective, professional and sustainable services to low-income immigrants in greatest need.
Subscribers are non-Catholic nonprofits with a mission to serve low-income immigrants by providing, or seeking to provide, legal immigration services. CLINIC’s affiliates represent the vibrant diversity of local groups defending immigrants and facilitating their integration. Our affiliates include libraries, affordable housing nonprofits, refugee service organizations, domestic violence survivor assistance programs, labor unions, and more.
A subscriber candidate must have a state-certified nonprofit status and 501 (c) 3 IRS tax designation. Subscribers should have a demonstrated mission to serve low-income and other vulnerable immigrants. Organizations seeking subscriber status must be providing direct legal services to low-income immigrants or actively planning to establish such services. Subscribers are expected to be, or become, attorney-driven, Department of Justice recognized, or pursue recognition with at least one accredited staff person in order to practice immigration law legally.
