The LUM Immigration Clinic often assists local families beyond navigating paperwork with the Immigration & Naturalization Service. Families often need assistance with day-to-day needs and emergencies.
Recently the LUM Immigration Clinic assisted one family in moving their belongings from storage to their new apartment. LUM staff were able to recruit members from two Purdue fraternities (Delta Pi Rho and Sigma Chi) to assist all day one Saturday (pictured). The Immigration Clinic also utilized other LUM services and partnered with a couple of local churches to gather donations and financial assistance to assist the family with new expenses and basics supplies, food and clothing.
This is just one example of how the impact of the LUM Immigration Clinic on local families expands beyond the citizenship and naturalization process.
