OPENING THE DOOR FOR OUR NEWEST NEIGHBORS
 
 

Our Mission:

Welcoming our newest neighbors.

 
 
 

 

Why we do what we do.

We love and serve our immigrant neighbors by providing affordable legal services and, together, opening the door to full community engagement.

Open Door Immigration Services developed as a ministry of Highrock North Shore and we seek to love our immigrant neighbors through the provision of affordable legal services, which are not always readily or affordably available to those moving here from other parts of the world.


Our Services.

The first meeting gives us a chance to get to know you, your story, and your immigration goals. From there we can provide immigration options for you and your family and how much our services will cost.
