Our Immigrant Welcome Center
The Immigrant Welcome Center (IWC) houses our Neighbor 2 Neighbor Resource Center (N2N), designed to provide support for immigrants seeking assistance in navigating systems in Charlotte. La Coalición staff and volunteers are prepared to assess needs and facilitate exchange of information on community resources of la Coalición and others available in the Charlotte area. Every year we serve close to 4000 individuals.
In partnership with Crisis Assistance Ministry, Loaves and Fishes and Good Friends, we offer immediate crisis assistance to maintain stable housing, avoid homelessness and ensure access to basic needs including shelter, clothes, and food.
We also offer support to victims of domestic violence or other cases of violence through a network of partner agencies helping individuals gain access to legal support, health services and safety planning.
In partnership with the Mecklenburg County Court House we hold a Divorce and Custody Workshop monthly at la Coalición. Click here for the schedule and registration form. We offer a women’s support group twice a month that uses literature and poetry to help women overcome a loss or struggle they may have experienced.
RESOURCES AND REFERRALS
Our goal is to increase integration and reduce barriers to resources therefore, we offer a variety of referrals to other agencies in Charlotte for example Spanish-speaking attorneys and low-cost health clinics.
