LEGAL IMMIGRATION PROGRAM
Holy Cross Ministries is dedicated to helping immigrants and their families gain legal status and participate more fully in the community.

Since then, HCM has served over 27,000 individuals during their journeys to citizenship. HCM also collaborates with numerous community partners to provide affordable legal services, education and advocacy for Utah’s immigrant population.

HELP SUPPORT OUR FAMILIES
Holy Cross Ministries works to ensure that everyone is able to participate fully in our community. Many individuals and their families face barriers such as language, culture, abuse and location. Your support helps us continue offering low-cost services to a critically underserved population.
UtahDACA was created based on a collaboration of several Utah universities, immigration nonprofits, law firms, technology companies, and the Mexican Consulate of Salt Lake City.
