Citizenship Program

At Nuestra Casa the demand for Citizenship classes continues to grow.

Participants must be Legal Permanent residents who qualify for citizenship to enroll in our program.

Classes are led by our Citizenship teacher then broken up into focus groups, depending on levels of English ability.

Curriculum includes information on:

  • Naturalization process
  • U.S. history
  • Importance of civic participation
  • Support in both the English 100 exam and 100/20 Spanish exam.
  • Civic education includes practice of civic questions, 1:1 mock interviews, and context comprehension on the N-400 application for naturalization form.

We also invite Department of Justice-accredited organizations to elaborate and answer questions for our students to assist us in making the naturalization processes less daunting.

The time it takes someone to reach the preparedness of submitting for naturalization depends on the individual and their personal learning goals. We provide support and resources to help all participants achieve their goals.

It is a privilege to help support the successful transition to citizenship for members of our community.

Citizenship Testimony

“At our age we have learned a lot with the help of Nuestra Casa.
We are very grateful that because
of their programs we were able to study
and become U.S. Citizens.”

“Being able to participate in Nuestra Casa’s ESL Classes and bring my toddler with me to class has really made learning possible for me. I originally started only taking the ESL classes but now I am also part of the citizenship classes on Mondays and Wednesdays. Nuestra Casa has become my home away from home since I’m here 4 days a week.”

-Yolanda, Sunnyside
