We Have Answers. Find Out More.

Get answers—in nearly any language—by calling Catholic Charities at the New York State New Americans Hotline: 1-800-566-7636 (toll-free in NYS).

Catholic Charities operates the New York State New Americans Hotline , a statewide information and referral hotline that gives general information and referrals to appropriate service agencies in response to immigration and citizenship-related questions.

Hotline operators speak English, Spanish, French, Haitian-Creole, Italian, Polish, Arabic, Turkish, Albanian, Macedonian, Bosnian, Serbo-Croatian, Chinese (Mandarin), Hindi, Urdu, and Punjabi. The New Americans Hotline provides an expanded menu of language options - previously not available - via a language service line, as well.

The NYS New Americans hotline does not provide legal advice. Questions on individual eligibility are referred to legal services agencies for immigration consultations.
