Immigrant Legal Center and Refugee Empowerment Center merged on October 1, 2022, uniting two of Nebraska’s most well-respected immigrant-serving agencies. With over fifty years of combined service, ILC and REC have a wealth of expertise, experience, and resources that allow our staff to provide a holistic blend of high-quality services to our newest friends and neighbors.
As Nebraska and southwest Iowa’s leading immigration legal services provider and refugee resettlement agency, we are focused on empowering immigrants to live with confidence and free from fear.
Through immigration legal services, refugee resettlement, social work, education, and advocacy, we are unique in our ability to meet the ever-changing needs of immigrant communities. Our singular mission is serving our newest neighbors with the highest quality of services while maintaining the dignity of every person regardless of their country of origin or immigration background.
Immigrant Legal Center + Refugee Empowerment Center is dedicated to the belief that all lives have equal value. We are committed to creating a workplace where employees thrive both personally and professionally. We also believe our employees should reflect the rich diversity of the global populations we aim to serve – in race, gender, age, cultures and beliefs – and we support this diversity though all of our employment practices.
All applicants and employees who are drawn to serve our mission will enjoy equality of opportunity and fair treatment without regard to race, color, age, religion, pregnancy, sex, sexual orientation, disability, gender identity, gender expression, national origin, genetic information, veteran status, marital status and prior protected activity.
