The Children’s Aid Society strives to provide children and families with the supports they need to realize their “American dream”. For many of the immigrant parents in the communities served by CAS, becoming an American citizen can seem daunting because of a language barrier or the lack in assistance to fully understand the process and its requirements. CAS has joined the ya es hora ¡Ciudadanía! Campaign to engage community members who are eligible permanent residents and educate them on how to apply. With over 400 partnering organizations, the campaign has motivated over 1 million individuals to obtain their U.S. citizenship.

An upcoming Citizenship Application Assistance Workshop, to be held on Saturday, February 25th from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. at Intermediate School 52 in Washington Heights, will provide free of charge assistance with the naturalization application process including a review by an immigration attorney, passport photos and citizenship study materials.

The assistance workshop is by appointment only. Only the first 75 participants will be assisted. To register and for more information, please call 1-888-839-8682 or visit
