Social Services

At the Amigos Center we strive to provide quality social services to every client. We are a friend to people in the community who often do not know where else to go or who else to lean on. We show God’s love by listening to clients, praying with them, and guiding them through obstacles and crisis to get them on a solid foundation to a better future. We help families in the following ways:

– Assistancelittle girl with pillow

In a crisis, families need just a small boost to make it through. We provide emergency food and clothing to help bridge the gap between crisis and stability.

In Immokalee, our formal food pantry hours are Wednesday, 9-12 and 1-4.

In accordance with Federal Law, U.S. Department of Agriculture policy, and our contract with the Harry Chapin Food Bank our organization is prohibited from discriminating on the basis of race, color, national origin, sex, age, or disability.

– EducationEnglish Class

We help families know what they need to know to succeed. We teach English and literacy classes in Immokalee. We hold community seminars on a variety of topics.

Immigration Services

In 2016, Amigos Center helped 1,392 people with immigration services.

The Amigos Center offers family based and country specific immigration and citizenship services. We have two Accredited Immigration Specialists, Christina Leddin and Lynn Mark as well as immigration attorney Lindsay Ray. The Office of Legal Access Programs (OLAP), a department of the U.S. Department of Justice, pursuant to title 8 C.F.R. § 292.2(a) recognizes our Amigos Centers in Fort Myers and Bonita Springs to provide legal work at a nominal fee. Many families are unable to pay the fees of an immigration attorney or do not know where to turn for trust worthy assistance — the Amigos Center gives families a safe and affordable way to take care of their family immigration needs.
