Success Stories

Client Profiles: Jesus


Financial Empowerment Team Support:
Jesus came in a few months ago seeking intimidate assistance to navigate an insurance claim from work accident. This accident left him with a head injury that impacts his short term memory making it difficult to keep down a job. His case manager was able to finalized the settlement agreement to $25,000, assist him in applying for GR and explore his housing options.

Immigration Specialist Support: Long term support for Jesus will come from him obtaining citizenship. Due to his head injury ECDA's immigration specialist referred Jesus to a pro-bono legal agency Neighborhood Legal Council for representation on a medical waiver in lieu of the citizenship test. The immigration specialist is helping him gather documents from his doctor to support the waiver. Jesus will know at the end of the year if he's able to receive the waiver and in the meantime is practicing for the test as much as he can with his immigration specialist on a weekly basis.
