Who We Are

Mission

We welcome, advocate, and educate in the service of new, recent, and established immigrants.

 

Our Core Beliefs

Immigrants strengthen the United States by bringing skills, talents, new energy, and economic growth to our communities.

Immigrants are worthy individuals deserving of respect. 

Mutual exchange and partnership between immigrants and established citizens lead to a healthy, happy community that supports human dignity and respect for all. 

Immigration is a complex, nuanced, often difficult process; for both immigrants and established citizens, education is key to making this process as positive and beneficial as possible.

Recent immigrants especially are often refugees fleeing from horrific circumstances. As fellow humans, we are called to support our brothers and sisters in the face of severe injustice and grave danger. 

 

Goals

  • Increase community members’ respect for and understanding of

    • The circumstances that cause immigrants to leave their homelands.

    • The challenges of immigrating to a new land and culture.

  • Increase community members’

    • Openness toward and acceptance of immigrants.

  • Identify opportunities to serve the emerging needs of the immigrant community on an ongoing basis, in partnership with immigrants themselves.

  • Improve services to immigrants in the greater La Crosse area through formal program evaluation and other continuous improvement methods.
