Diocesan Immigrant Support Network

The Diocesan Immigrant Support Network (DISN) was created in 2008 to build a network of support for immigrant parishioners throughout the Diocese. The network provides reliable and timely information, access to immigration legal services and advocates for immigration reform.

The Office of Catholic Charities & Social Concerns along with our Catholic Charities Member Agencies and partners will continue to provide reliable and timely information and access to immigration services.
