We are honored to be named a 2019 Top-Rated Nonprofit,” says Frederik Stefani, MRC’s CEO. “We are proud of our accomplishments this year, including our series of Immigrant Rights & Responsibilities educational workshops and our legal services for immigrants, domestic abuse victims, family reunification, and so many more.”

The Top-Rated Nonprofit Award is the based on the rating and number of reviews that MRC received from volunteers, donors and aid recipients. For example:

  • “When we met Frederik, we were taken aback by how honest and straight forward he was with our situation. He didn’t try to sell us a dream or a castle in the sky. He made sure we had a thorough understanding of my legal situation after having been deceived by previous lawyers. He explained the different outcomes based on the different legal paths we had available. Mr. Frederik and his entire team were that breath of fresh air we were hoping for; a reset button. The entire process felt personal. He didn’t see us just as clients but more like a family in desperate need of help, and we appreciate him for that.” – Client
  • “I have seen first-hand the caring, dedication, and professionalism of the entire MRC team. They live their mission statement by truly working holistically to ensure that their clients have all of the resources they need to build successful lives in the United States.” – Volunteer
  • “I know the MRC to be an outstanding nonprofit doing significant work led by great people that are responsible and engaged.” – Donor
  • “Migration Resource Center is an organization that motivates others and goes the extra mile to help. Migration Resource Center is guided by an experienced and diverse team who act in their client’s best interest.” – Professional in the field
  • “Migration Resource Center has helped many of our clients with their O1 visa application, one of the most complicated visas to prepare and obtain. We highly recommend their services as they are not only extremely professional and have a great online platform to work from, that makes the process hassle-free, but they also have a really warm and friendly energy what makes working with them a pleasant experience. Also, we love that their fees go to support those who might not have the means to access legal representation and they help any person with immigration issues regardless of their budget.” – Partner organization
