On Saturday November 23rd Outreach Assistant Rebecca Rybaltowski participated in an immigration informational event organized by the mobile Guatemalan Consulate at St. Mary Star of the Sea in Far Rockaway, NY. The event gave Guatemalans an opportunity to obtain passports, identification cards and renew their passports and identification cards. The event began at 9:00 a.m. and ended at 4:00p.m and over 900 people of the small close knit Guatemalan community gained access to the different services.
CMS had an informational table set up by the entrance of the event and people stopped by to inquire about how our services can ameliorate their labor, housing and immigration concerns. Many of the people who stopped by the table were searching for information about bringing their families to the United States from Guatemala.
