The Annual Awards Gala is Catholic Legal Services' major fundraising event. Catholic Legal Services is a nationally recognized agency with an experienced team of attorneys and immigration professionals and whose mission is to provide professional legal services to those who come from foreign lands who lack sufficient means to obtain representation without regard to faith or national origin. 

With your ongoing support, we will continue to provide legal services to immigrants who cannot afford private counsel. These services include representation before the Immigration Court (IC), Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA), United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), United States Immigration & Customs Enforcement (ICE) and Juvenile Court (JC).  

More than 2,000 individuals seek the services of CLS each month including immigrants seeking to reunite with their families, many of whom were separated at the border; political and religious refugees seeking safety and security, many of whom have experienced persecution and torture; battered spouses and their children; and long-term residents of the United States with significant family and community ties who face deportation.
