Welcome Center

Welcome to the Upper Darby Welcome Center! We are dedicated to helping immigrants in our community to successfully acclimate to life in the United States. Our services are designed to support you on your journey, and to help you celebrate your unique experiences and cultural diversity.

At the Welcome Center, we offer the following services:

  • ESOL/ESL classes: These classes are designed to help immigrants improve their English language skills, which can be essential for success in the United States.

  • Civics preparation for naturalization: Our civics classes are designed to help immigrants prepare for the naturalization process, including the civics exam that is required to become a U.S. citizen.

  • Assistance with USCIS and local state forms: Our team can help you navigate the often-complex process of filling out the forms required by the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) and local state agencies.

We have also partnered with Widener University and the University of Pennsylvania to offer a range of activities and programs that bring constituents together to learn from each other and improve their language skills.

Whether you are a newcomer to the United States or have been living in Upper Darby for many years, we invite you to visit the Welcome Center and take advantage of the services we offer. Come and learn more about our programs and activities, and see how we can support you on your journey. We look forward to meeting you soon!
