In October 2010, a small group of members from a variety of churches in Bryan-College Station, TX began meeting monthly to share our concerns about issues faced by immigrants in the community. After assessing the needs and existing resources, the group organized the Brazos Interfaith Immigration Network in May 2011. We are a caring community working to provide for the needs of the immigrant community in Bryan/College Station.
We have three main programs: Information, Advocacy and Referral (IRA), Classes, and the Workers' Rights Center. IRA is our client service on Tuesdays. Services provided range from translating documents, referrals for health issues, legal referrals, and more. We offer three 10-week-long Citizenship Classes, where students are given an overview of the naturalization process and prepare for the citizenship interview. The Centro de Derechos Laborales (CDL) focuses on issues surrounding workers' rights in and around our community. We also offer special events and workshops throughout the year.

We are always looking for volunteers who are interested in getting involved. Opportunities include English tutoring, helping with special events, administrative assistance, and being an Information, Referral & Assistance specialist. Click here to learn more about our volunteer opportunities.
