Begining in 2020, Catholic Charities Youngstown will be partnering with Catholic Charities Cleveland to offer a range of legal immigration services to those living in the Youngstown Diocese.

Sanchez will provide legal counseling and representation covering a wide-range of immigration matters, including consultation services, citizenship applications, adjustment status, permanent residency applications, work authorizations, protection-based claims like asylum, visas for victims of crime, trafficking or domestic violence, Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), visa processing, Temporary Protected Status, and court representation.

“In our line of work, a successful result may mean keeping a family together, or preventing the deportation of someone to a place where they face imminent harm or death,” said Sanchez. “We are excited to expand our immigration legal services to the Diocese of Youngstown, and look forward to helping as many people as possible.”
