I have been volunteering with Migration Resource Center for the past two years, and I have been impressed by the efforts that the entire staff puts into ensuring that each client receives the help & support they need, and that they are treated with respect and compassion. Each client is an individual & no two cases are the same - and MRC never loses sight of that.

I worked with MRC for three months and it was an extremely rewarding experience. I learned a lot during this short time. It's a close-knit, small office and everyone is very helpful and kind. If I can, I'd love to come back and volunteer here again.

I've been a volunteer at Migration Resource Center (MRC) for several years. I continue to volunteer my time there because I believe in the work they do...that a fair and just outcome to client legal issues shouldn't depend on their ability to pay for representation. Low-income and immigrant clients don't have many options. MRC gives them one.

Migration Resource Center (MRC) is a unique non-profit located on Staten Island, New York City. MRC serves members of the community to solve their immigration and tax issues with compassion and dedication. Each case that MRC takes on receives special attention and time. I started volunteering with MRC in 2016 and since then I have been part of this amazing family which offered me the opportunity to learn, gain new skills, meet different people and create lasting memories.
