The first Spanish bilingual social services program in the city began when the Council for the Spanish Speaking, Inc. (Centro Hispano Milwaukee (CHM)) first opened its doors in 1964.  In 1975, it became Milwaukee’s first Latino serving United Way agency.

Among its most significant accomplishments, CHM received accreditation to provide legal (immigration) services from the Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA) in 1982.  

With expected immigration reform, the program expects a dramatic increase in the number of those seeking assistance to attain citizenship. Completing residency and citizenship applications is a very involved process requiring much time and diligence.  CHM is the place to obtain accredited assistance.  Staff are committed to ongoing professional development and work with the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) office directly as needed.

Extensive partnerships in the community and with government agencies allows us to connect you to the help you need.

Services are offered in Spanish and English.
