Frida Kahlo Community Organization provides comprehensive legal and social service advocacy, with an emphasis on providing quality legal representation to immigrants, while promoting citizenship and naturalization for all immigrants.
FKCO was born with the purpose of preventing immigrant families from becoming victims of fraud, which was very common when the immigration amnesty plan was approved in 1986.
FKCO specializes in immigration services that support Latino families and create community cohesiveness. These services position families on the path to citizenship and thus foster community investment. FKCO has served over eight thousands families to date.
Our services include:
- Immigration policy & procedures workshops
- Legal assistance and representation in INS proceedings
- Assistance with residency, citizenship, family visas, humanitarian visas, work authorization visas, and applications for deferred action for childhood arrivals.
FKCO also offers free citizenship classes at accessible locations within the community as a public service to prepare immigrants for the naturalization process. These classes follow a prescribed curriculum to help people prepare for the interview and examination by INS on U.S. History and government. FKCO will conduct these classes at its site and at various partner organization locations.
FKCO is recognized by the Department of Justice and accredited by The Board of Immigration Appeals. Additionally, FKCO works with DePaul University’s Asylum & Immigration Clinic.
Immigration inquiries, clarification, and assistance with the legal process are available for a nominal fee.
