El Centro of Topeka sees a growing need for low cost legal immigration services to families in our community. Through the Department of Justice’s BIA Accreditation and Recognition process, we propose to provide families an added avenue to receive essential legal immigration services. IOLTA funds allow us the ability to receive the legal training necessary to apply for and ultimately provide these vital services.
