Our Clients

NCSCís doors are open to newcomers from all countries, and NCSC clients come from a wide variety of backgrounds and nationalities.  Most of NCSCís clients are refugees and asylees who have legally resettled in the United States after fleeing their own countries because of the threat of persecution based on their race, religion, nationality, membership in a particular social group, or political opinion. NCSC also serves immigrants who have obtained legal permanent residence status but have not yet become citizens.
