I was the first member of my family to come to the United States. I was told by friends who had come before me that I could get help with applying for a green card and getting papers for my family to join me at SJCC. I was worried at first because most agencies that provide this service charge for it. I was happy to find out that not only did SJCC help free of charge they also helped me apply for a fee waiver so I would not need to pay the fees for the applications. With the help of SJCC I was able to get my green card and later finalized my citizenship documents. My wife and children soon joined me as well. Today my children are all in college and graduate school and have been able to thrive because of the support we got from SJCC.
