IFRP at the Spanish Community Center helping immigrant families

Leer en español

The Spanish Community Center now offers free assistance referring and signing up families to appropriate social services through the Immigrant Family Resource Program (IFRP).

Immigration Services Specialist Maurisio Martinez explains, “The purpose of IFRP is to inform those in the community about services and eligibility requirements of IDHS programs such as All Kids, WIC, SNAP, SSI, Medicaid and other state assistance programs. IFRP is a great source for all families to get the assistance they may require.”

IFRP is a partnership between ICRR (Illinois Coalition for Immigrants and Refugees Rights), IDHS (Illinois Department of Human Services) and CBO (Community Based Organizations).

The Spanish Community Center will help individuals who need assistance in one of those programs to fill out the necessary online applications through a personalized one-on-one meeting.
