The National Partnership for New Americans advances the integration and active citizenship of immigrants to achieve a vibrant, just, and welcoming democracy for all. They are a national multiethnic, multiracial partnership that harnesses collective power and resources to mobilize millions of immigrants for integration and transformative social change. They help facilitate community voices, many that have previously been excluded, to speak on their own behalf. They also create and implement innovative programs that help immigrants become active and engaged citizens working for a stronger and more inclusive democracy and a vibrant nation.
The New Americans Campaign is a groundbreaking national network of legal-service
providers, faith-based organizations, businesses, foundations and community leaders that is paving a better road to citizenship. We are modernizing and streamlining access to naturalization services, so that greater numbers of legally qualified permanent residents take the critical step to becoming American citizens. The United States is renowned worldwide as the land of opportunity. People come from all over the world with dreams of achieving a better life for themselves and their families, laying down new roots and calling this great nation home. Their love for the opportunities and promise of America and their aspirations for its future strengthen the fabric of our nation. Our country’s commitment to integrating the entrepreneurship, diversity and passion of new Americans is a measure of our greatness as a country.
From the two childcare centers in Homestead, RCMA has grown today to 71 centers in 21 Florida counties. All serve the rural poor, and most serve the children of Hispanic immigrants. During the 2011-2012 school year, RCMA’s 7,500 children were 86 percent Hispanic and 11 percent African-American. Government grants comprised 85 percent of RCMA’s $58 million annual budget. Over the years, RCMA has broadened the range of its programs. Our Early Head Start centers accept infants as young as six weeks. Our after-school programs serve children ages 6 to 16.
