Hale * began working with WGV partner Jacqueline Watson in 2011, when she applied for legal permanent residency as the daughter of a US citizen. Last month, Hale was able to achieve her dream of becoming a U.S. Citizen despite having profound physical and mental disabilities that prevented her from learning English, civics, history and even being able to attend her USCIS appointment. With Jacqueline’s advocacy, Hale was naturalized in her own home by a USCIS officer who traveled to her bedside to administer the naturalization ceremony. Congratulations Hale and Jacqueline for this inspiring victory!
