Community Support for Immigrants (CoSI)

Who We Are


CoSI (Community Support for Immigrants) promotes a welcoming, respectful, and safe environment for international persons living or working in central Iowa.

We build bridges of trust, mediate attitudes of divisiveness around the topic of immigration, and reduce the impact of an immigration enforcement incident on the social fabric and economic well-being of the community.

CoSI prepares the community to handle the challenges associated with immigration enforcement.

We provide a humanitarian safety net for workers and families who live with the anxiety of possible disruption of family life, separation from minor children, detention, and potential deportation.
