Self-Help for the Elderly leads this initiative with a coalition of legal and social service providers. Eligible San Franciscans are able to learn about their rights to apply for citizenship and will be helped with the citizenship process. This initiative is a partnership between the City’s Office of Civic Engagement & Immigrant Affairs (OCEIA), philanthropic organizations, and community based naturalization service providers. Self-Help for the Elderly is the lead agency within the philanthropic organizations.

Initiative objectives:

  • Inform immigrants about citizenship
  • Deliver high quality naturalization services
  • Provide resources
  • Share best practices in citizenship outreach
  • Instill engagement among newly naturalized citizens
  • Foster teamwork

We want to help people of our community become citizens. For more information about SF Pathways to Citizenship, contact Self-Help for the Elderly today.
