4 iii INTRODUCTION About this resource: This resource contains a list of legal service organizations that provide free or low-cost immigration legal assistance and representation for non-detained children in immigration proceedings. This list is comprised of mostly non-vera affiliated organizations, but also includes those Vera/DCS Legal Access Project subcontractors who may be able to accept referrals for released children. The guide is organized alphabetically by state, one organization per page. The information shown on each page includes the types of legal assistance provided by each organization, the areas and immigration courts served, and relevant contact information. This guide is comprised of organizations that: 1) agreed to be listed in this directory, and 2) provide pro bono (or low-cost) legal representation for non-detained children who are without counsel. We hope this referral resource guide helps you to obtain representation for immigrant children. We consider it a living document, and we will be continuously updating it throughout the year. To that end, we depend on both your feedback on this current version and on your recommendations for new organizations to contact in the future. You are encouraged to contact the organizations directly to ensure that the information provided here is correct and current. The Vera Institute of Justice does not endorse the organizations listed in this directory nor does it express any views on the nature or quality of services provided. If you have questions or comments about this guide, please contact Zerlina Chiu at or at (212) Thank you.
