Getting Permission to Work in the US


WARNING: Many agencies advertise that, for a price, they can get work permits for immigrants who lack legal immigration status. These may not be valid.  When fraud is suspected, call the Catholic Charities-operated New York State New Americans Hotline to make a confidential report. 

Call the New York State New Americans Hotline at 212-419-3737.  Or call toll-free in New York State at 1-800-566-7636

What to do About Wage Theft


Wage theft is the illegal underpayment or non-payment of wages owed to workers. When you don’t receive all the wages you have earned the first step is to bring it to your employer’s attention, as hopefully it was only a mistake. However, if it turns out you’re a victim of wage theft, unlawful deductions, shorted hours, or more, you have rights.

Regardless of your immigration status, if you worked in New York State and were not paid for those hours you can file a claim with the NYS Department of Labor for unpaid wages.  

There are also ways to make sure that you are keeping proof of informal, day labor or piece work so that you can recover wages if you are not paid.

Gracie Mansion Centennial Honor Is Shared With a Friend - Catholic New York


Recognizing the centennial celebrations of archdiocesan Catholic Charities and UJA-Federation of New York, Mayor Bill de Blasio paid tribute to both agencies at Gracie Mansion and said they “make the work we do so much stronger.”

“We could not reach the people we reach without them,” the mayor said in his remarks at the evening reception June 13, the day after the annual Catholic Charities Gala at the American Museum of Natural History.

The city and world Catholic Charities and UJA were founded to assist was much different from the one today, both in needs to be served and agencies providing services, de Blasio said.

“Their chapters in New York City just happened to spring up in 1917, in a time of great doubt in the world. Middle of a world war, a time of great concern, and good people got together—people of faith, people who cared deeply for their community. (They were) visionaries who realized that there was so much need that was going unmet, and something different had to be built.”

The mayor, at the end of his remarks, proclaimed June 13 as Catholic Charities and UJA Centennial Day in the city of New York. He presented the citations to Msgr. Kevin Sullivan, executive director of Catholic Charities, and Eric Goldstein, CEO of UJA-Federation of New York.

A large crowd with board members, donors, administrators and staff members of both agencies filled the reception room. Catholic Charities and UJA don’t just share an anniversary; they cooperate on various initiatives including the annual Feeding Our Neighbors campaign.

“That we share our centennial with the UJA Federation makes it even better,” said Msgr. Sullivan, noting the agencies’ mutual work on behalf of “compassion and justice” in New York.

Catholic Charities is “very proud of being a faith-based organization” that reaches out to affirm the dignity of every human person no matter their language, country of origin or religion, Msgr. Sullivan said.

“We believe that our faith calls us to reach out, to recognize God in that person, and together create a common good.”

Multi-Million Dollar Post-Sandy Power and MEP Infrastructure Project Breaks Ground - EC&M


Haven Plaza Square LLC, an affiliate of the Association of New York Catholic Homes and the New York Institute for Human Development (IHD); CTA Architects; and the managing agent, The Wavecrest Management Team, recently broke ground for a $9.89 million natural disaster-resistant infrastructure building and associated resiliency upgrades at the affordable housing complex known as Haven Plaza. Haven Plaza Square LLC is the owner of the residential complex located on Avenue C between 10th and 13th Streets on Manhattan’s east side.

The new two-story structure plus basement and the upgrades throughout the complex are in direct response to 2012’s Hurricane Sandy, when the nearby East River overflowed its banks, the Con Edison East River Generating Station adjacent to Haven Plaza exploded, and, as a result, Haven Plaza lost all electricity and steam for heat. Residents — many elderly — were trapped without elevator service, electricity, heat, or water.

The New York City Department of Housing Preservation and Development (HPD) and the New York City Housing Development Corporation (HDC) awarded nearly $10 million to Haven Plaza Square LLC for the project through the New York City Build It Back program.

According to CTA Architects’ Principal Daniel J. Allen, AIA, the new 2,080-sq-ft building, located at 212 Avenue C at East 13th Street, will house three boilers for heating steam on the second level, with gas as the primary fuel; electrical meters, domestic hot water pumps, and hot water heaters on the first level; and oil backup storage in the protected sub-grade space. In addition, he says the front façade will be glazed to allow the passers-by to view the inner works of the building and equipment within.

Due to the building’s location, the project calls for a strong architectural presence. When complete, the building will incorporate 1,300 sq ft of glazed curtain wall, 1,500 sq ft of metal façade panels, and 500 sq ft of green wall.
