Welcome to the website for Aisling Irish Community Center

Established in 1996, the Aisling Center's main principle is to assist Irish immigrants in their transition to life in the USA. We do this by offering a number of services including legal, social, psychological and educational. The Aisling Center is one of the largest Irish immigrant resource centers in the tri-state area and the main provider of services for the elderly Irish and Irish-American community in Yonkers and Woodlawn.

To review President Obama’s Executive Action Plan on Immigration click here.

If you are eligible to apply for work authorization under President Obama's Executive Action Plan, PLEASE ensure you gather all important and relevant documents such as your passport, birth certificate, bank statements, utility bills, transaction receipts, etc. to prove your identity and your presence in the U.S. between Jan 1, 2010 and Nov 20, 2014. If your passport is expired, get it renewed NOW! If you cannot find your birth certificate, you can purchase a replacement long form birth certificate at www.certificates.ie.

In anticipation of the number of people qualifying for benefits under President Obama's Executive Action plan, Aisling Irish Community Center has secured the services of immigration attorneys from Neil Weinrib & Associates., a reputable law firm specializing in immigration law, to provide professional and confidential immigration advice and process applications at the center. For further information about this law firm, go to www.nawlaw.com or call 212-964-9525.

Please contact Aisling Irish Center at 914-237-5121 or e-mail info@aislingcenter.org if you want to seek professional advice from a reputable immigration attorney. We will be holding public information meetings early in 2015 to provide people with additional information on DAPA and DACA.
