RESOURCES FOR NEW IMMIGRANTS

Provide an Immigrant Guide to help our clients who are new to the United States be successful in their new country. The guide can help with issues such as: applying for a job, renting an apartment, filing taxes, selecting insurance plans, and helping kids with school. The cost is approximately $4 each, so it would be $40 to purchase 10 guides or $400 to purchase 100 guides. Go to our donation page and type "Immigrant Guides" in the Special Notes or Comments section. View the guide at http://www.unitingresources.org/product-details/the-immigrant-guide/
