Free, Confidential and Here for You

Our New Americans Hotline is here to help!

From immigration and naturalization questions to legal aid, we are here to assist you.

The New Americans hotline is a toll-free, multi-lingual hotline. The hotline provides live assistance in more than 200 languages. Anyone can call the hotline for information and referrals, regardless of citizenship or documented status. Calls to the hotline are confidential and anonymous.

Managed and manned by Catholic Charities NY, the hotline operates from 9AM to 8PM (ET), Monday through Friday (excluding Federal holidays.)

Through the hotline, you can:

  • Ask general immigration and naturalization questions
  • Obtain referrals to immigrant-related public and private programs
  • Find out information about the ONA Opportunity Centers
  • Report immigration assistance fraud and schemes against immigrants

Please note:  Our NYS New Americans Hotline does not provide legal advice.  Instead, we refer questions on individual eligibility to legal service agencies for immigration consultations.

Catholic Charities is responding to the needs of our neighbors during the 
COVID-19 pandemic.
