Diversity is One of Our Greatest Strengths
Unity is Our Power

Immigrantinfo.org’s mission is to support a healthy and resilient community for everyone through successful integration of immigrants, refugees and asylees into our society. Our intention is to create a collaborative space that facilitates connection, cooperation and focus on our common goals. We invite the submission of information about news, classes, resources, and community events of interest to Santa Clara County immigrants.

COVID-19 continues to be an influence in our lives and we continue to post important news, information and resources in the COVID-19 Section.  Service Providers have been challenged to stay in sync with guidelines from the Department of Health, along with evolving needs and changing resources. We have eliminated the detailed listing of Santa Clara County ESL Classes, in order to focus on the program changes and the many local, state and national COVID relief resources.

We continue to maintain the Immigrant Info Section, with multi-language pages with information on Disaster Preparation and Response, Immigration and Citizenship, Education, ESL Tools and Resources, the Rapid Response Network, and local Santa Clara County news and resources.

Please notify us of any necessary changes or updates to postings  on the site, so that we can keep the information current and accurate.  Contact Us .
