The Immigration Legal Services Program was created in 1971 with the founding of Catholic Migration, becoming a trustworthy and high quality resource for the diverse and densely populated boroughs of Brooklyn and Queens. We have also played a notable role in responding to historic moments in U.S. immigration reform and policy, such as the legalization program of the early 1980s and the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals policy created in 2012.

The Immigrant Tenant Advocacy Program (ITAP) was established in 2005 to improve the living conditions of low-income, immigrant tenants in Queens. Since its founding, ITAP has helped thousands of immigrant families fight for dignified and affordable housing. ITAP has gained widespread recognition for its pioneering work in response to predatory investment in affordable housing by private-equity-backed firms, which seek to rapidly displace low-income tenants from gentrifying neighborhoods. Our work has resulted in notable victories for immigrant communities in Queens and Brooklyn. Read More
