Get answers—in your language—by calling Catholic Charities at the New York State New Americans Hotline: 212-419-3737 or 1-800-566-7636 (toll-free in NYS).
Catholic Charities operates the New York State New Americans Hotline, a statewide information and referral hotline that gives general information and referrals to appropriate service agencies in response to immigration and citizenship-related questions.
Hotline operators speak English, Spanish, French, Romanian, Polish, Albanian, Japanese, and Arabic. The New Americans Hotline provides an expanded menu of language options, previously not available, via a language service line, as well.
The NYS New Americans Hotline does not provide legal advice. Questions on individual eligibility are referred to legal services agencies for immigration consultations.
