The goal of the Older Refugees program is to assist refugee clients over the age of 60. Services provided to older refugees focus on education, and referrals to community services appropriate to address the specific needs of the elderly.

This program provides older refugees with immigration services, such as application for citizenship. The older refugees program also assists clients to plan for the process of citizenship through ESL and Civics classes, medical documentation and medical waivers, and information necessary to complete the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Service (USCIS) forms.

Eligibility criteria:

  • Must have documentation proving refugee, asylee or victim of trafficking status.
  • Must not be a U.S. citizen
