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.

Roger Ebert's Film Festival

Roger Ebert's Film Festival, also known as Ebertfest, is held every April.  Dates for the 2017 festival are April 19-23, 2017.

Founded in 1999 by the late Roger Ebert, University of Illinois Journalism graduate and Pulitzer Prize-winning film critic, Roger Ebert’s Film Festival (Ebertfest) celebrates films that haven’t received the recognition they deserved during their original runs. The festival gives these films and their filmmakers a well-deserved second look.
