​Legal Services

The MICA Project handles a wide variety of cases, including family, naturalization, removal defense, asylum & refugee issues. In certain types of cases, individuals with an attorney are four to six times more likely to win their case. We strive to work with our clients, making sure they understand and are involved in every step of the process to work towards a positive outcome.​ An important part of our mission is to make our services accessible for low-income clients because we believe access to legal services is a basic component of the American commitment to justice.

Client Support Services

The Client Support Services Department of the MICA Project is a source of ongoing support for clients navigating the immigration system. The department provides comprehensive case management and trauma-informed care coordination services. This includes referrals, crisis management, safety planning, and other support services.

​Community Outreach

The MICA Project has the long-term goal of clients utilizing their confidence, skills, and legal status to become leaders in their communities. With the benefits of the MICA Project's representation and educational outreach, clients are better able to become engaged in advocating for systemic change. ​Another way that our organization serves immigrants is by offering collaborative presentations for members of the non-immigrant community. In this way, non-immigrants are to learn more about the issues and topics around the immigration process which allows for growth as individuals and as a community. This community strength is particularly healing when families are facing the devastating effects of immigration enforcement and racial discrimination.

Mission

The Migrant and Immigrant Community Action Project (MICA Project) is a community organization committed to working with low-income immigrants to overcome barriers to justice. The MICA Project utilizes legal services, organizing, advocacy, and education to promote the voice and human dignity of immigrant communities.
