Integrated Services for Immigrant Families (ISIF)

The ISIF was launched n 2012 as a response to fill the void in the provision of direct immigration services, naturalization preparation, and education needs in the communities of Doña Ana County. The ISIF consists of three components: Legal Immigration Services, Citizenship Preparation, and the Promotoras de Apoyo Familiar program.


Understanding that citizenship is an important pathway to overcoming numerous barriers in terms of improving the quality of life for individuals, the CDC has developed a unique, customized curriculum for individuals seeking to attain their naturalized. Classes have been held in Butterfield, Doña Ana, Anthony, Chaparral, Vado-Del Cerro, Sunland Park, Hatch, and Las Cruces proper. Courses are designed to accompany clients throughout the naturalization process by integrating our immigration services into the curriculum while also teaching English, U.S. history and government, civil rights, and examples of civic participation.  Small classes encourage one-on-one interaction between students and teachers.
