Rochester’s Catholic Family Center provides immigrants and refugees with access to counsel, intervention and official representation related to their status in the United States.
CFC has been assisting immigrants since 1996 and is currently affiliated with the New York State Office for New Americans, according to information from the agency. In 2016, CFC assisted more than 350 households with a range of immigration issues, including adjustment, naturalization, employment authorization, parole extension, family petitions and general consultation.
