Resources for Unaccompanied & Immigrant Children
Immi helps immigrants in the U.S. understand their legal options. Our online screening tool, legal information, and referrals to nonprofit legal services organizations are always free to use. Immi was created by the Immigration Advocates Network and Pro Bono Net, two nonprofit organizations dedicated to increasing access to justice for low-income immigrants.
ImmigrationLawHelp.org is a searchable online directory of over 1,000 free or low-cost nonprofit immigration legal services providers in all 50 states. Only nonprofits that are BIA recognized or have attorneys on staff are included in the directory. Users can search ImmigrationLawHelp.org by state, zip code, or detention facility. Users can also refine their search by types and areas of legal assistance provided, populations served, languages spoken, other areas of legal assistance, and non-legal services provided. ImmigrationLawHelp.org was developed by the Immigration Advocates Network and Pro Bono Net with support from the Four Freedoms Fund.
The mission of the Immigrant Legal Resource Center (ILRC) is to work with and educate immigrants, community organizations, and the legal sector to continue to build a democratic society that values diversity and the rights of all people.
Kids in Need of Defense (KIND) works to protect unaccompanied children wherever they are in their journeys. KIND helps children through legal services; public education and outreach in the U.S., Central America and Mexico; and reintegration support for children returning alone from the U.S. to their home countries.
The Unaccompanied Children Resource Center offers free legal resources and information for advocates and immigrants. Children and their families or guardians can find out more by clicking on "Do you need legal help?" There is a map to help find a lawyer, and information about immigration papers, immigration court, who can stay in the United States, how to take good care of an immigration case, and answers to other questions. Lawyers and accredited representatives can click on "Are you an attorney who can help?" for a directory of volunteer opportunities, basic and advanced information on immigration law, links for technical support, a calendar of events, news and more. This website is a project of the Immigration Advocates Network, American Bar Association, and Pro Bono Net. It includes resources developed by our partners and other immigrants' rights advocates.
