    • How Can You Help
There is much fear and confusion due to public charge changes. Not all immigrants are impacted by public charge.These organizations provide free or low-cost legal advice on immigration and public benefits:  
Know your rights and take care of your health. USCIS has announced that COVID-19 testing, treatment, and prevention would NOT be used against immigrants in a public charge test.
  • This means immigrant families should NOT fear being denied a green card from when seeking needed health care. If you don’t have a doctor, contact Valley Connection for checkups and preventative care at 1(888) 334-1000.
