In this clip from "In Good Faith," Sr. Maxine Kollasch talks with Holy Cross Sr. Sharlet Wagner, an immigration lawyer and executive director of the Newcomer Network, part of Catholic Charities in Washington, D.C. The Newcomer Network provides immigration legal services, but clients are often in precarious situations with many other needs. Sister Sharlet explains how the "navigator" program helps them connect with multiple services — both inside and outside Catholic Charities — as clients settle into their new life.
