The Immigration Project

The Immigration Project provides access to quality legal services in Central and Southern Illinois where there are estimated to be 100,000 immigrants residing.  Due to  the complexity of immigration law, we have found that access to quality legal services is essential to keeping families united, building strong communities, and protecting victims of crime.

Three Spinners

With your assistance, Three Spinners provides clothing, food, support, language training, and job preparation for refugee families being resettled in the U.S. After fleeing persecution or violence, refugees go through an 18-24 month screening process before arriving in our community. Since more than 50% of all refugees are children, these displaced families need help with their first steps.

Faith in Action Volunteer Orientation

Margot, the daughter of a Faith in Action care receiver recently wrote us a letter about the impact that Faith in Action has had on her father.  Our volunteer, Woody has been visiting Willie for almost a year.  Willie's daughter stated, "In a word, Woody is a "Godsend", he IS Faith in Action!.........From periodic in-home visits with Dad to simply being friendly company (even with his lovely wife over dinner) to an occasional podiatry appointment, Woody has demonstrated the mission of Faith in Action honorably."  Join Woody in making the difference in the life of a senior in your community
