Immigration Assistance

Soccer Team EBCC is your local resource for top-notch nonprofit immigrant programs in Boston, MA. Everything we offer is either free or low cost, and we work with people of all ages. Our accredited counselors collaborate with immigrants to obtain legal documents such as work permits or green cards and legal residence cards, which allow families to gather and obtain US citizenship. We’re equipped with bilingual, compassionate staff members who care about you and your family and want to ensure that you have the best possible experience in this country.

Our immigration support extends to everyone, including those who do not yet have legal status. We believe everyone deserves a chance for legal citizenship and the pursuit of happiness and are willing to do what it takes to help the immigrants of Boston to achieve those goals. Get in touch with Luisa Chew, our immigration coordinator, to learn how we stick with you to navigate one of the nation’s trickiest processes.

Youth Programs for Young Immigrants

GOALS participants at State House

Young people are one of our most important demographics, and we cater to them in a number of ways. We make education a main focus of many of our programs and offer youth development opportunities. This helps to strengthen immigrant families as a whole and opens the doors for a brighter future.

Our programs are as varied as the children they serve. We have after school and summer options, English classes, and homework help too. Our community center is a place where children of all ages and income levels have access to computers and can take advantage of tours, seminars, and student counseling. We regularly put together organizational and leadership opportunities for young people through campaigns to access university studies for immigrant students.

Types of Immigration Support

Latina ESL Program

We aim to improve the overall quality of life for immigrants and give them the resources they need to become productive US citizens. As such, our work covers everything from registering voters and educating about the electoral process to helping parents improve public school systems so their children can succeed. We also offer basic and intermediate English classes for mothers with free childcare during the class; sessions are offered on weekends for those who work during the week.

Those we serve have the opportunity to give back by helping us work for social justice on issues that affect immigrants. Some of these include public education, access to higher education, and immigration policy.
