CARECEN Empowers Immigrant Communities on Long Island

Through Legal Services, Community Education, and Advocacy 

OUR WORK | What we do

CARECEN has provided high quality legal assistance to immigrant communities in Nassau and Suffolk counties for over 35 years. We currently offer a variety of legal services in both affirmative and defensive cases, including initial and renewal requests for temporary protected status (TPS) and Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), green card renewals, naturalization, adjustment of status, family petitions, unlawful presence waivers,  Special Immigrant Juvenile Status (SIJS), among others. We screen for a broad range of legal relief when we meet with our clients and inform them of the immigration benefits they are eligible to apply for and the implications of applying for them.

UPDATE | What's going on at CARECEN?
