Richards celebrates opening of new Immigrant Welcome Center at Queens Borough Hall


As the city celebrates the contributions of immigrants during Immigrant Heritage Month, Queens Borough President Donovan Richards Jr., alongside elected officials, advocates and leading immigration service providers, officially launched the soft opening of Queens Borough Hall’s new Immigrant Welcome Center with a ribbon-cutting ceremony on Tuesday, June 15. 

The Immigrant Welcome Center is a first-of-its-kind service hub at Queens Borough Hall — located at 120-55 Queens Blvd. — representing an unprecedented investment in immigration-related resources available for more than 1 million immigrants who call Queens home.
