Changing Lives… Building Communities

Immigrant Integration

Millions of immigrants call Brooklyn and Queens home.  However, sometimes these communities contain some of the most vulnerable citizens among us. Catholic Charities welcomes the stranger in our midst, works to protect their rights, and helps them to find homes, learn English, and gain citizenship.

Immigrant Workers’ Rights

Accordion Down Chevron

Our affiliate agency, Catholic Migration Services, provides free advice and representation to low-wage workers with employment problems and questions in all five boroughs. The Línea Laboral, our hotline providing workers’ rights information and assistance, is open to all residents of New York.

To speak with a member of the Workers’ Rights Project, please call (877) 52-LABOR (52267) Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. ¡Hablamos Español!
