About HIAS Immigration & Citizenship

HIAS Immigration & Citizenship is proud to provide an array of comprehensive, cost-effective immigration and citizenship services to hundreds of individuals and families.

Our long history of dedication and service continues, as we help people in need from around the world reunite with family members and settle in their community, find stability and raise their children with a sense of belonging in their new country.


Our mission is realized through the Jewish values Tikkun Olam, Tzedakah (acts of justice and good deeds), and Bruchim Ha'bayim (welcoming the stranger).
