Organization Overview: The American Dream: Citizenship program at ACCESS will provide services to more than 200 legal permanent residents of Arab, Latino, Bangladeshi, African, Albanian, and Bosnian descent concentrated in the Detroit metropolitan area. ACCESS is centrally situated within these communities. The program will offer free services including a U.S. citizenship prep course, citizenship days that provide naturalization eligibility screening, case management and data tracking, assistance submitting applications for citizenship, informational workshops, and citizenship attainment.
Participant groups are comprised of low-income, new immigrant populations, including seniors and refugees. This program seeks to build a deeper level of trust between immigrant communities and federally supported agencies that offer citizenship and naturalization services, and will reach a population of people who are currently assisted with these services on the marginal level.
With civic integration comes participation – in service groups, school boards, homeowners associations, charitable organizations and many other worthy causes. This citizen-driven community participation is a hallmark of what makes this country great.
