Immigration and Citizenship

Lorena Galindo-Perez, Paralegal – Immigration BIA Accredited Representative and Anthony Moss, certified ESL and Citizenship Instructor

One of the qualities that makes the Coastside so unique is our culturally diverse population. Many of our neighbors are from Mexico, Portugal, and the Philippines. They work hard to provide for themselves and their children.

Coastside Hope provides support to clients and their families who live and work on the Coastside and are seeking permanent residency. Many of them want to become American Citizens, but find navigating the legal system can be overwhelming.

Lorena Galindo-Perez, Paralegal – Immigration BIA Accredited Representative, and Cecilia Sahagun, immigration assistant, help make the process manageable and rewarding.

With support from a Zellerbach Foundation grant, Anthony Moss teaches free weekly citizenship classes at Coastside Hope.
