APOPKA, Fla. — Apopka city officials presented a congratulatory proclamation Friday in the honor of the Founder of Hope Community Center.
Founder sister Anne Kendrick, volunteers and staff helped celebrate their 50th anniversary ceremony.
The center provides legal immigration services and citizenship preparation classes to people in Central Florida.
Kendrick said if you need assistance, don’t hesitate.
“We try to help people who are undocumented and help them figure out a path to be able to stay here,” Kendrick said.
In fiscal year 2020, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services awarded the center a grant to help prepare lawful permanent residents for citizenship.
It was one of 39 organizations nationwide that received a citizenship grant that year.
