The Rotary Club of Poulsbo-North Kitsap sponsored KIAC’s free dental clinic recently:
Poulsbo North Kitsap #Rotary donated $1,000 to cover the cost of bringing Medical Teams International’s #mobiledental unit to our Family Service Center in Bremerton. We are so grateful to have such amazing support from our North End community!
Following up on a community information meeting in March, the KIAC legal team went back to Forks last weekend to guide individual clients in preparing to apply for immigration programs benefiting childhood arrivals and parents of American citizens. With the help of community organizers and local translators, KIAC met with 21 clients in this under served region of our state. We also did some coaching for people who are sole proprietors regarding keeping good business records. We helped one person with a case of employer exploitation.
With the help of your donations, KIAC will also be reaching out to other outlying areas, including Aberdeen, Sequim and North Mason County. More than 149 clients eligible for these programs are currently being served out of our Bremerton office.
During the last two weekends of March KIAC Immigration Legal Services held tax workshops to help clients prepare their IRS tax filings. We also helped several clients prepare applications for Individual Taxpayer identification Numbers (ITIN) so they can continue to file their taxes.
This is just another step in work to help immigrants integrate into our community.
