About Us

Each day innocent Non Citizens and Organizations who do not have money to pay for the services of Immigration Attorney face unthinkable severe hurts and sufferings due to wrong Immigration help. Universal Presbyterian Church of God is one such victims. That is why Universal Presbyterian Church of God established the UPCG Immigration Legal Services to assist the low income people in similar situations with their immigration matters.

UPCG is a 501(c)(3) Organization Recognized, and our Staff is Accredited by the US Department of Justice under 8 CFR § 1292.11 and 8 CFR § 1292.1(a)(4) to provide Immigration Legal Services to low-income immigrants and refugees residing in, East Hartford, Manchester, Hartford Connecticut, and beyond. We represent clients before the Executive Office for Immigration Review EOIR (Immigration Court and the Board of Immigration Appeals) and DHS ( USCIS, CBP, or ICE).

Our Core Values

Welcome
“When I was a stranger, you welcomed me.” Rooted in faith, UPCG believes that we are all strangers on earth and we are called to welcome those fleeing persecution and seeking refuge in the United States. Mathew 25:34-35, 1 Chronicles 29:15, Hebrews 11:13-16, 1Peter 2:11.

Prophetic Witness
Not all are prophets, but all are called to be prophetic witnesses. At UPCG Immigration Legal Services, this means we are committed to speaking out boldly and standing up for the just treatment of those we serve.

 

Integrity
Driven by a desire to serve vulnerable refugees and migrants, we refuse to compromise our moral, economic, and political integrity as we carry out our mission to that end.

 

Innovation
Committed to bold action and continuous learning, UPCG Community Projects invites others to join our mission, eager to embrace fresh perspectives and explore new ways to engage in this work of welcome.

 

Interdependence
UPCG Community Projects depends on a diverse network of community partners, faith-based groups, and private entities to magnify our reach and impact – and they rely on our expertise and leadership.
