We defend the legal right of immigrant children to apply for protection.
We are now representing children in more than 1,000 cases.
What We Do
Going beyond legal support
Throughout the immigration process, the Safe Passage Project social work team works with our clients to provide healthcare, educational, and other referral services necessary for the child’s well-being, and to support the legal case.
We have also pioneered a mentoring program that provides a network of support for our clients, Amigos de Safe Passage, where we connect our clients with other children who have been through the same legal process for peer support and an opportunity to enrich the children’s social network in the United States.
We are especially proud of our all-girls’ peer empowerment group called Las Mariposas ("The Butterflies"), where our female clients are offered a safe space to grow and flourish through sports, storytelling workshops, and more.
Last year, we trained over 1,600 individuals on effective representation of immigrant children, and provided close mentorship to an army of more than 400 pro bono attorneys.
