Volunteer at Immigrant Hope

​Immigrant Hope Santa Barbara opened its doors in 2012 providing English and Civics classes for adults who wanted to naturalize to become U.S. Citizens and in 2014 received recognition from the Department of Justice (DOJ) to provide legal representations to immigrants putting in applications with U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS).

There are tons of volunteer positions available! If you have a heart to serve the immigrant community of Santa Barbara, click the link below.
