Welcome! Lighthouse Immigrant Advocates is a 501c3 nonprofit immigration law office and advocacy center providing high-quality, low-cost legal services.  Lighthouse also organizes events, workshops, presentations, campaigns, and initiatives to advocate and educate the West Michigan community on issues impacting impacting immigrants and refugees. We are a dedicated and qualified group of attorneys, coordinators, administrators, board members, and volunteers working together as a nonprofit organization in Holland, Michigan.

How We Got Started:

En la primavera de 2015, la fundadora de Lighthouse vio la necesidad de servicios legales de inmigración por la orilla del lago, particularmente en el condado de Ottawa. El condado de Ottawa es hogar para 17,067 personas nacidas en el extranjero, necesitadas de servicios para recibir, incluir y ayudar a inmigrantes y refugiados. Aunque Grand Rapids cuenta con varias excelentes oficinas de abogados de inmigración sin fines de lucro, por diversas razones, esas oficinas no satisfacían adecuadamente las necesidades del Condado de Ottawa. El 2 de noviembre de 2015, Lighthouse Immigrant Advocates abrió sus puertas, ayudando a brindar estabilidad a West Michigan a través de servicios legales de inmigración de alta calidad y bajo costo, abogacía y educación comunitaria. Desde que abrió sus puertas, Lighthouse ha provisto sus servicios a más de 650 personas y familias que de otro modo podrían haber prescindido de servicios legales o haber pagado una prima alta por esos servicios.

What We Do:

We provide direct immigration legal services to anyone regardless of income. We advocate on behalf of immigrants and refugees on the local, state, and federal levels. We educate the community about immigration law and policy and other issues impacting immigrants and refugees. If you are interested in hosting a Lighthouse workshop at your organization or event, please visit our Community Education Page.
