Immigrant Information and Assistance
Out of 58 counties in California, Santa Clara County is unique when it comes to addressing the needs of residents born in other countries. With almost 40% of the county population born outside the US, Santa Clara County parallels in New York City, Chicago, and Los Angeles in constituting one of the most diverse populations on earth. For over 18 years Santa Clara County has invested in immigrant integration.
Through various types of immigrant programs, sponsored and funded by the County (The SCC Citizenship Initiative, the Immigrant Action Network, Immigrant Relations and Integration Services--IRIS, and now the Office of Immigrant Relations), the Board of Supervisors has continuously renewed its commitment to immigrant communities and their full integration into the society.
