LAA expands immigration services to Athens and Lawrenceville
Strategic move comes as organization expands footprint across Georgia
In its efforts to serve a larger part of the state’s growing Latino population, the Latin American Association will start offering immigration legal services in Athens and Lawrenceville effective the first week of July. The services in Athens will be offered through a partnership with the Athens Latino Center for Education and Services, also known as ALCES. In Lawrenceville, these services will be offered at the LAA’s new office in that city.
“We know there’s a need for expanded immigration legal services in northeast Georgia,” said Jessica Daman, the LAA’s managing director of immigration. “And we found a partner in ALCES with a history in the Athens Latino community so we can build off existing community services to better serve that population.”
The strategic move beyond the Atlanta metro area comes as the LAA is looking to expand its footprint across the entire state in order to better address the needs of Georgia’s Latino population, which now represents about 10% of the state’s population.
Services offered in Athens and Lawrenceville include naturalization and citizenship applications, work permit applications, family petitions and much more. To make an appointment, call 404.702.0271.
