FIRM Citizenship Support
FIRM provides free ESL/Citizenship classes for the community. When cohorts are in session, classes take place Monday through Wednesday, 10:00 AM-12:00 PM and are conducted in Lao and English. FIRM staff support clients to prepare for the Naturalization test by teaching US history and civics and introductory English. Staff also assist clients with the Application for Naturalization (as well as applying for applicable fee waivers). If you would like to become a citizen of the United States, come see us today! For more information, please contact Vicki Kham (Laotian) or Sam Chang (Hmong/Lao/Thai).

Sometimes, the paperwork and fees for citizenship & immigration can be complex. FIRM offers to help for free, but many others may offer “help” as well. Don’t Be a Victim of Immigration Fraud.
