Esperanza Immigration Legal Services (EILS), a non-profit 501(c)3, was formed in 2009 with the mission to provide direct legal services, advocacy, and community education for underserved immigrants and their families so they have the opportunity to contribute to and participate in American society.
EILS is located in Hunting Park, the heart of Latino North Philadelphia. We offer convenient, affordable, and bilingual services to primarily low-income immigrants. The map below demonstrates the location of other immigration legal services providers within the City of Philadelphia father south. EILS’ location ensures improved accessibility for those near to us seeking services and hope to those who need it most.
EILS was established by Esperanza as part of its mission to strengthen Hispanic communities. It is a key facet of Esperanza’s commitment to forging an “opportunity community” in North Philadelphia – a place where all aspire to live. While Esperanza has historically worked to support the passage of comprehensive immigration reform nationally, EILS directly addresses the need for direct legal assistance on the ground.
