Make a long-term investment with just one donation

A donation to CLIA makes family reunification possible, helps asylum-seekers and refugees to be free and safe, empowers survivors of domestic violence, and ultimately gives immigrants the chance to achieve their American Dream.


Helping immigrants and refugees in Nebraska for over 20 years

Our Mission: To help immigrants and refugees achieve their American dream by providing high-quality and affordable legal services

Based in Lincoln, Nebraska, CLIA is a 501 (C) 3-certified nonprofit and is accredited through the Department of Jurscue. We have an experienced staff of attorneys and DOJ accredited representatives available to help those in need all over the state. Additionally, we are the only nonprofit in Lincoln that provides the full array of legal immigration services.

Immigrants are integral, important, and necessary members of our society and when you invest in an immigrant’s future you benefit all Americans. Our clients pay taxes, obtain an education to fulfill their passions and dreams, and support their communities by giving back to society. CLIA and the thousands of clients we aid and support thank you for your generous support of immigrants and refugees' families in Lincoln, Nebraska, and beyond.
