Engaging and Empowering our Community
We are out every day in the streets, actively engaging the Morris County community. Empowering the community is embedded in every part of our Organization's identity. It is the reason why we were founded, it constitutes a fundamental part of our mission and vision, and it is integrated into our everyday culture. We provide representation, education, advocacy, and other types of support to foster community development. We work tirelessly to help make sure that the basic needs of low-income individuals and families are being met, and assist them throughout their journey to becoming self-sufficient.
Providing Access To Critical Resources
Having access to the right resources can be a determinant in someone's life. Throughout our different departments, we provide the Morris County community with the critical resources they need in order to succeed, from ensuring they are able to meet their basic needs to guiding them into bettering themselves and achieving their ultimate goals.
Advocating For Education
At MCOHA, we believe that education is detrimental to the development of individuals' lives. We offer individual tutoring to children, citizenship classes, community forums, assistance in obtaining admission into higher education institutions, citizenship classes, and referral to partner academic programs that offer ESL classes as well as academic degrees. We are committed to helping the Morris County community get access to the education they need to succeed.
Empowering Through Representation That Matters
An important part of any community is the diversity that conforms and shapes it. MCOHA understands that importance and we lead by example by infusing the diverse culture into everything we do. We aim to teach individuals to be unapologetically themselves, and proud of their rich and diverse heritage. We strive to teach others to accept and respect the diversity that encompasses the community in which they live.
Helping Them Achieve Their Immigration Goals
Our expert immigration attorneys work tirelessly every day to help the community of Morris County and beyond achieve their goals of becoming legalized and ultimately citizens of this country. Through our low-cost immigration services, they have access to high-quality legal representation from accredited attorneys that work with them and guide them through their entire process.
Leaving No One Behind
We ardently believe that no community can truly thrive if some of its members are struggling. Social and income inequality can have a real and tangible impact on individuals' lives, and this gap can be especially significant for minorities, elderly, handicapped, survivors of violence, and very low-income families and individuals. That is why MCOHA is working on the front lines to help minimize that gap and provide everyone with the opportunities and the tools they need to succeed and achieve their goals.

Every day, MCOHA works in courtrooms and communities to improve the lives of thousands of Latinx individuals and families in Morris County and beyond, every year.
