Comprehensive Services for Immigrants and Refugees

NSC’s Refugee and Community Integration (RCI) department provides a wide-range of services to meet the needs of newly arriving refugees, victims of human trafficking and unaccompanied children. We are the largest and most comprehensive provider of services in the Greater Philadelphia region. Our goal is to welcome refugees, victims of human trafficking and unaccompanied children and put them on a path to self-sufficiency and create a safe and permanent residency.
Since 1921, NSC has remained the premier center for language classes in the Greater Philadelphia Area. We pride ourselves on our diverse student body and on our commitment to assisting immigrants and refugees transcend language barriers in their communities.
NSC’s Health and Wellness Program helps refugees, immigrants, asylum seekers and victims of torture connect with needed case management, health care, mental health care, and wellness support. We offer an integrated model of care, matching clients with needed case management, health care, mental health care and wellness support.
The Employment Programs at Nationalities Service Center provide newly arrived refugees with job readiness and job placement support enabling them to secure their first jobs in the U.S., and the opportunity to achieve economic self-sufficiency. Continued successful partnerships with small and multinational businesses in Philadelphia have afforded refugees the opportunity to obtain employment in industries such as light manufacturing, food production, retail and hospitality.
We provide legal representation to low-income individuals in matters of immigration law. We focus on reuniting families, seeking humanitarian relief for adults and children fleeing persecution, assisting survivors of domestic violence and other crimes, and representing clients in removal/deportation proceedings. Recognizing the need for immigration reform, NSC advocates for pro-immigrant changes in government policies.
